Comment: 1. The sub-link to Origami was intersting to me. My 10 year old, daughter as a
special interest in this topic. I have been meaning to buy her an Origami book
she has been asking for. I spent a couple of hours trying it out.
2. The quality of content is great. The age and grade groups targeted was a
great tool. younger people need mathematic tools and programs that catch the
eye. I makes learning fun. When you are relaxed with math , you learn more.

3. If used appropriately , of course the material would be effective in
enhancing teaching and learning. While using animals and animation, and simple
things you could try with pieces of papers. Create a sense of being able to
relate to simpler things in a more comlexed world. To bring things in the world
of a middle or high school student. Dealing and seeing things from their
perspective, while getting them to advance their chronilogicle thinking.

4. The material would be easy to use for the first time. Especially if you like
challenges , while having fun . Seeing problem in a colorful animated point of
view. And even if at first it is not easy to you. The interest develpoed would
keep you trying until you perfect it. Or at least get it.
