Tell me about it –
Purplemath.com was founded in 1998 by Elizabeth Stapel. It was intended to be a “personal website” for her math students but after uploading tons of lessons, traffic at this site began to increase tremendously. In result, the site was redesigned to give a more professional look. By 1999, the site moved from free hosting to its own domain and “Purple Math” was chosen as the name. Purplemath served about six and a half million page viewers to nearly three million visitors in September of 2011. WOW!
What’s on the website?–
Purplemath offers the following:
- Learning Forums
- Site Reviews
- Homework Guidelines
- Study Skills-Self Survey
What’s the best part about this website?
The Purplemath Forum is probably the best part of the website because it gives students the opportunity to ask questions if they get stuck on some math homework or looking to challenge their math abilities.
Purplemath.com is free!!!
