# Introduction

Welcome!  This site has been designed to "assist you in your pursuit of increased mathematical understanding," or whatever sounds good to you.  The subjects covered range from Pre-Algebra to Calculus.

First, a little background.  As we worked our way through various math classes throughout the years, we often became confused or lost.  Instead of deciding that it might have something to do with all the sleeping and talking we did during class, the teaching style, the pace of the class, or something like that, we figured that it was probably because we were just morons.  So for those of you who are "morons like us," here's a site that will help you understand math concepts better.

This site will hopefully clarify some of those confusing math concepts.  You know -- the ones that have been waking you up in the middle of the night for so long!

## Learn

This is the largest portion of the site -- where you will find tutorials, sample problems, and quizzes.  Here are a few important notes about this section: Most other sites we've seen attempt to teach things "from the bottom up."  This site is designed under the assumption that you know some of the basic concepts but need some reinforcement.  Or, perhaps you want to review things you learned ages ago.  Also, we have included a short quiz after each tutorial so you can test yourself on what you've just learned or reviewed.
One other point of clarification: "Algebra" covers elementary algebra, "Algebra II" covers intermediate algebra as well as basic trigonometry, and "Precalc" covers advanced algebra.

## Interact

Interaction is what makes the Internet great, so we've provided a number of interactive resources to help you with math.

Message Board
We have often found that many problems can be solved by simply asking someone else for some quick help, so we've included a Message Board on the site where you can go communicate with others.
And for all the students out there who are suffering though calculus, we've set up a separate Calculus Message Board for calculus students only.  Don't you feel special?

Formula Database
Have you ever needed to use a formula or equation, but couldn't quite remember it?  Now you can use our Formula Database.  Commonly used formulas have already been added to the database.  You can search the database as well as add new equations to the collection.  Take a look!  And add your favorite equation -- we know you have one . . .

Quizzes
This page provides easy access to our JavaScript and text-only quizzes.  That way, if you want the quiz but don't want to wade through the lessons, you don't have to.

There are a lot of great math sites on the Internet.  This page has links to some of our favorites.

Educators
Teachers and educators are welcome to visit this section.  Anyone else is forbidden!  :-)

Feedback
Do you feel an intense need to send some feedback to the "morons" who created this site?  Here's your chance!

Credits
If you really care, you can look at all of our credits and acknowledgments.
