# CoolMath.com – Combining Cool + Math since 1997

Love mathematics, or hate it, but you cannot ignore it. That’s right. No matter what you do, mathematics does play a crucial role in many fields of study, research, businesses, and day-to-day lives. The importance of numbers, counting, reasoning, and logic cannot be stated in a few words. Cool Math or CoolMath.com is a portal where everybody who is 13+ years of age can go and access free + cool math content to enhance their basic and advanced mathematical skills.

• Check out my review of the Cool Math Portal.

Concepts like Numbers, Fractions, Percentages, Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus are required in research as well as daily business and household activities. Whether you’re in school, college, or appearing for online tests, you cannot run away from mathematics.

Well, folks at Constructive Media, the founding company of www.coolmath.com understood the importance of making mathematics cool and easy for students in 1997. Let’s find out more about the team behind the platform.

## WorkForce behind Cool Math Portal

As mentioned in my article on cool math games, the coolmath.com website is backed by ex-intelligentsia from the famous Encyclopedia Britannica, the most trustworthy information source, and Merriam-Webster, a 150-year old language information portal!

Apart from the Cool Math site, Constructive Media also owns 3 other websites such as: Cool Math Games, CoolMath4Kids, and Quizlife.

## Content at CoolMath.com

The material at CoolMath.com website is broadly divided into three categories:

• Pre-Algebra
• Algebra
• Pre-Calculus

Apart from mathematics concepts, there is another ‘tools and reference’ section that provides a lot of other interesting stuff. Let’s look into each of the cool math content section one-by-one:

### 1.     Pre-Algebra

This section covers Primary and Lower Secondary Level educational concepts such as:

Pre-Algebra Concepts
Factors and Primes
Intro to Fractions
GCF's and LCM's
Fractions
Decimals
Percents
Exponents
Order of Operations
Properties
Signed Numbers (Integers)
Intro to Exponents
Intro to Polynomials
Intro to Solving Equations
Intro to Graphing

So, if you’re looking to brush-up basic mathematics functioning, this is the section to discover! It will reinforce your fundamental theories of Mathematics such as:

• What’s a fraction?
• Converting Fractions to Decimals
• Dividing Decimals by Decimals
• Cumulative and Distributive properties of Addition and Multiplication, etc.

### 2.     Algebra

This Section on the cool math portal covers all the possible topics in Algebra!

Algebra Concepts
Exponents
Polynomials
Factoring Polynomials
Division of Polynomials
Solving Equations
Solving Inequalities
Lines
Complex Numbers
Systems of Equations (2x2s)
Systems of Equations (3x3s)
Determinants and Cramer's Rule
Functions
Inverse Functions
Exponentials and Logarithms
Absolute Value Equations and Inequalities
Sequences and Series
Combinatorics
Graphing Polynomials
Graphing Rational Functions
Matrices
Conic Sections

The way cool math has covered the concepts in each topic is quite impressive. You can start with examples on solving basic equations:

To solving complex equations:

An essential part of solving mathematical problems on a book, or online, is Practice, Practice, Practice!

Cool Math gives you a problem to solve with a click. You are then required to solve it on paper, and check with the answer provided, again with a click!

### 3.     Pre-Calculus Algebra

If you try to recall your struggling times with mathematics in Secondary and Senior Secondary classes, I’m quite sure it will be related to one of these concepts!

Pre-Calculus Algebra Concepts
Slopes of Lines
Equations of Lines
Horizontal and Vertical Lines
Tangent Lines
Graphs to Know and Love
Shifting, Reflecting, Etc.
Piecewise Functions
Absolute Values
Sideways Parabolas
Polynomials
Increasing and Decreasing
Maximums and Minimums
More on Tangent Lines
Tail Behavior
Intro to Rational Functions
Rational Functions - Intercepts
Rational Functions - Vertical Asymptotes
Rational Functions - Horizontal Asymptotes (and Slants)
Rational Functions - The Whole Thing
Rational Functions - Increasing and Decreasing Revisited
Rational Functions - More on Limits
Exponentials and Logarithms
Precalculus Geometry Needed for Calculus
Basic Formulas to Know
Precalculus Trigonometry
The Unit Circle
The Pythagorean Identities
Other Identities to Know
Solving Trig Equations

The concepts of 2D/3D Geometry, Lines, Slopes, finding whether a point lies in a particular plane or line, solving graphical questions, and remembering hundreds of formulas were a pain in the ass!

If you’re a student struggling with the same stuff, I would recommend you to read and practice each concept from the cool math website before starting out on any exercise.

They’ve simplified things in a way which is easy for students to understand. Hence, sticking to the promise of creating a cool math website.

## My favourite Cool Math Stuff on the website:

As I mentioned earlier, there is other cool math stuff available on the coolmath.com website such as:

### Playing with Graphs

Well, I have been a lover of algebra and graphs came naturally to me. Just kidding!

A lot of time and effort is required to build your concepts of 3D maths, graphs, etc.

If you prefer reading books, I would suggest you go for a book called ‘Play with Graphs’ from Arihant Publication (India) to best understand the concepts in Graphs.

However, Cool Math Website Portal has been the closest competitor so far in explaining the concepts such as Mod shifting:

### Cool Math Dictionary

The online math dictionary under the ‘Tools and Reference’ section is one of the coolest things to be found on the website:

When you click on a letter, it shows you all the possible mathematics related words with that letter. Isn’t that super cool?

It serves it just right when you’re going through the definitions and meanings of each concept when preparing for an exam or completing your homework.

## What’s more?

Exploring the coolmath.com portal will take you on a journey filled with a lot of mathematical learning, combined with a pinch of coolness in the way CoolMath.com explains each concept.

There is some other cool math stuff to explore on the website such as:

• A career in Mathematics – Many scholars do not know about the happenings in the mathematics industry of USA. Cool Math provides links to the websites/universities where a recruitment drive may be active.
• Teaching Tips – Some hands-on tips on how to teach a specific topic, or how to better manage a mathematics class. It’s a great reading source for Teachers.

Lastly, I think www.coolmath.com is one of the best digital sources to consider for basic and advanced level mathematics concepts, especially in topics of algebra and graphs.

However, there is no better habit than reading a book. But, the times are changing, and with giants like Facebook entering the market of education, digital education is going to be the next big thing.
