    Mr Harry Tuttle,

    How are you? I was just looking at your page and I was wondering to what extent are you involved with math? I see that you have done your research on different math sites and I was wondering how you rated these sites?
    Thanks Dean

    Dean,
    I find that different sites fit different needs at different times for different children. No, I have not rated the sites – I try to find the particular activity in the site and use that,
    Harry
