a) I basically just experimented with all the different shapes provided on the console. b) This is definitely a perfect program to use for visual learners. c) Although limited to certain and shapes given it did the job of getting the point across. d) There were no flaws I can see or think of other then the minor limitations but the site loads fine. Although I can see a few glitches for those having trouble with Java.

I enjoyed looking through this page. I am a VERY visual learner... also the less math equations the better! I decided to look up this subject because a friend of mine did a math presentation on tesselations and I thought it was very interesting and easy to follow. This website is easily understood and fun! (compared to other math!)

I really enjoyed this material as it was a great visual and interactive aid for expanding on the knowledge of geometry. It was interesting to learn that Java Kali was written for SGI, as I have had friends who worked there, so I could personally relate to it. Also, I used the corresponding website: http://www.scienceu.com/geometry/ when I wrote my paper on tessellations. I spend a good 30mins looking over this site playing around with the different patterns. It is very well put together and a great 'hands-on' resource to build on an existing knowledge of geometric shapes. It could even be a good introduction to geometric theory as well. As I am a visual and tactile learner, I really enjoyed it and think it would be helpful to people who have a similar learning style.

Technical Remarks:

I would be a bit concerned for anyone who was trying to access the links if they did not have Java on their computers. It could be problematic for people who are not technically inclined.

a) I basically just read the material and tried to do outside research on it because it was fascinating to read about. b) The material was pretty accurate with the patterns and colors that can be selected. It shows selection of line segments that can be drawn and the program replicates the chosen pattern. It be good to check out the website which relates to this subject: http://www.ScienceU.com/geometry/articles/tiling/wallpaper.html c) I believe that it is a effective enhancement tool for teaching because of the fact that it is fun and it gets students involve under the category of geometry. d) Basically when first time users go on it and follow the directions then they could easily produce a wide variety of colorful and attractive patterns.

I enjoyed this program. I spent thirty-minutes reviewing and experimenting with
the various patterns and found it to be interesting and creative. A lot of the
information given was valuable. I don't forsee anyone having any issues
accessing this website.

A very nice collection of Java applets on interactive geometry created by the
Geometry Center. All applets are working, there is an instruction set + a
description for each applet.
