1. How you reviewed the materials (Did you spend 5 minutes browsing, 2 hours trying it, or actually use it in teaching-learning activities?).
I spent about 40 minutes reviewing Professor Calter?s website and taking notes.
2. The quality of content (Does the materials accurately present concepts and models that are educationally significant?)
I found the material to be intensely interesting because I love learning about the connections between art and other disciplines, most notably mathematics and architecture. As far as I could tell the material accurately presented concepts and models that were educationally significant. The topics that were of particular interest to me were the Golden Ratio, Roman Architecture, and Perspective.
3. The potential effectiveness for enhancing teaching and learning (If used appropriately, will students' learning and faculty's teaching be enhanced?)
I definitely think that if used appropriately student and faculty?s teaching would be enhanced by looking through the material presented on this website. It certainly helps to have at least a modest understanding of college level mathematics, however the interested student could still benefit. I liked that Prof. Calter included a lot of pictures with his notes. When describing art it is always best to have a visual reference.
4. The ease of using the materials (Will first time users find it easy to use the software?) I found the material was quite easy to use. The text was easy to read and understand, and even if a user doesn?t have much experience with computers, the website was quite user-friendly.

I spent 5-10 min. reviewing this link and to be honest, I was disapointed. Although the cover pictorial was great there was not enough information and material provided that could be used as a learning/reference tool.
Possibly I had trouble with this link. Everytime I clicked on the appropriate icons, the page would freeze. Very frustrating as this is a subject that I would really like to explore in more detail.
