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.

Technical Remarks:

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.

Technical Remarks:

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.
