Short History of

I created this site in about 1997 on Geocities. It was called
I wrote the html code by hand as my project in an html class for Pinellas County teachers held after-school two times and online, kind of... The teacher was Cynthia Heard. When she looked at my project she commented that I did not have to do such an ambitious project but it was somewhat of a good challenge for me.

I was teaching at Madeira Beach Middle School at the time and had started teaching a few math classes in addition to my regular life science classes. I was surprised to discover that so many 7th and 8th grade students did not know their times tables.

I had tried to make a HyperStudio program that would provide students with independent practice on the multiplication facts, with feedback. I was not successful. I tried to find websites that taught the times tables, but at that time in the history of the web, they were few of them and they were fraught with technical problems and complicated graphics.

So you can see my motivation to write a code that was simple, yet provided feedback. I decided on making a chart for the answers with each number a possible link. Only the correct number would lead to the next problem which would first display "correct", then the next problem.

The technical problem I never solved was sizing the page so that the answer would not show at the bottom of the problem. I solved that partially, but not totally.

Surprisingly I continue to get traffic! The last two months I have had over 1200 visitors each month. That amazes me.

Recently Factivation's owner graciously offered to cover my monthly cost for Yahoo. I am very happy about that, especially since I was contemplating lowering my expenses by moving my site to google pages and that was going to be a major project (changing the code for the links, transfering my domain name, etc.) If you have time, check out Factivation.

I am also a HUGE fan of Ben Harrison and what he has done to help so many be able to get help for their students on math through his company BigBrainz. If you are not familiar with his TimezAttack video game, you owe it to yourself to check into it. Unbelievably, he offers the base version for free! It teaches all the facts but lacks some of the fancier graphics and worlds that kids love. The link below this rant takes you to his site.
