Because we are not web professionals! We are mathematics teachers who are doing our
best to provide a website which is simple to read and use. You must agree that it is better to
have a Maths Help site which is provided by professional maths teachers who are dabbling in web
design, rather than by professional web designers who are dabbling in maths teaching!!!
We have decided specifically not to clutter the site up with unnecessary
frames, animations and fancy graphics. Such things can take a long time to load, and that costs
you the user time and money which can be better spent on learning maths! We also wanted to make
the site accessible to people who don't have the latest browser technology.
Actually, we think our site is quite well designed where it matters most - in the answers to
the questions we post up in our Knowledge Bank. We take time here to produce graphics and
diagrams that help to explain the mathematics. We will always try to
produce important formulae clearly, for example whereas other sites which
rely on text only would probably write something like x=(-b+/-sqrt(b^2-4ac))/2a. Which do
Of course, every web site can be improved. If you have any constructive criticism which
might improve the look and feel of this site, especially how it appears in other browsers, please
