I like the math resources on AoPS.com, and I wanted to share these resources with other students during the pandemic. Math sites like ProjectEuler.net also inspired me. I may have been inspired by someone else's project at a previous hackathon. He created a spreadsheet of math competitions. I thought that it would be a good idea to compile a list of math practice resources for students, and "Math at Home" was the result.
I also gained technical help or technical inspiration from the following websites: https://www.thesitewizard.com/css/how-to-center-text.shtml, https://www.thesitewizard.com/css/center-div-block.shtml, https://codingdomain.com/webdevelopment/css/crash-course/, w3schools.com, https://medium.mybridge.co/26-impressive-web-projects-built-with-css-only-4a4c2f773a21, https://codepen.io/jcoulterdesign/pen/OMOqjy, https://codepen.io/samirc/pen/vGKoxj, https://codepen.io/davidkpiano/pen/wBGjMr, https://codepen.io/juliangarnier/pen/idhuG, https://codepen.io/jaysalvat/pen/HaqBf, https://www.rapidtables.com/web/html/link/html-link-new-window.html, coolors.co, https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Nunito?query=nunito&sidebar.open=true&selection.family=Nunito:wght@600, https://covid19api.com/ (nice colors and design), https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JXk8T_FD7pYAOBvUJoMJBVOka-zNGC6lEUMkBL5KLjA/edit, and probably more sites.
What it does
The website provides 3 links to math resources on AoPS.com.
How I built it
I used CodePen.io to code the HTML and CSS of the website.
Challenges I ran into
I had trouble brainstorming this topic, and I also ran into challenges while coding the CSS for the website. I did not know the proper commands to create certain webpage designs, so I had to experiment with HTML and CSS terms.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The webpage has a generally nice appearance, which I am proud of. I am also proud of keeping the webpage relatively simple.
What I learned
I learned basic skills in HTML and CSS. I also learned how to use GitHub (create a repo, etc.)
What's next for Math at Home
I hope to find a domain (weebly, Wix, or wordpress all work) and put the resources on a public site. Also, I hope to expand the number of resources offered, so kids can learn not only math but also computer science, physics, and more.
