I’ve added a nice little feature to the MathsLinks site – Favourites.

On MathsLinks, once registered on the site, you can Favourite a link.  This does two things for users of the site:

  1. you can keep your favourite links on an easily accessible page
  1. others can see the most favourited links on the site, making it easier to find the best resources

Here’s a rundown of how to use the feature.

Login or register on MathsLinks

Browse the links for the topic of interest, let’s say Angles.

To save a link as a Favourite, just click “Save a Favourite”.  If you’ve already saved a link as a favourite, you can see how many people have saved it, clicking “A Favourite” will take you to your list of favourites.  You can also delete a favourite.

When you save a favourite, you get this confirmation page.

Your Favourites page shows all the links you’ve saved as favourites.

I hope this feature makes the site more useful, and if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

I just stumbled on your site - a great idea - hoping to both use and contribute on my first year of teaching next year. Thanks for the great work.

Thanks enzuber, looking forward to keeping up with your first year on your blog. There should be some resources and lesson ideas on this site that you can use. Simon.
