Through interactive graphs, ThinkEconomics illustrates basic economic principles that are taught in a college-level introductory economics course. These graphs enable students to develop analytic and deductive reasoning skills by manipulating graphical elements of the economic models. Students also learn how to apply these models to analyze and understand economic phenomena.
Would be a good study tool to reinforce student learning in the basics of S/D and AS/AD shifts. The interactive graphs must be shifted by the student, and then feedback is immediately given indicating whether the chosen shift was correct.

I spent 20 minutes browsing the materials. I found the text to be easy to read and clear and the Flash animations to be excellent. With minimal fuss, I was able to manipulate the diagrams by pulling the curves and clicking on 'items' like prices and quantities in response to the problems posed. I agree with the author that the interactivity adds to the learners interest and understanding. Because it is all done over the web, any Internet user with an up-to-date Macromedia Flash add-in should have no difficulty using this site.
Perhaps in the Introduction, the author should give users the opportunity to download/update Macromedia Flash and list the technical requirements.
