I love this program. This definitely trains your mind into working hard at figuring out the solution. Stacking slabs of blocks doesn't seem like a hard thing at first but when you actually get to it, it turns out to be a lot of moves needed. I think the Tower of Hanoi would be perfect for the class that I'm in because we focus on the strategies on solving problems. Using the program was easy for me. I definitely want to come back to this program and work on it daily for the fact that it'll help me think of ways to tackle the problem.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent the most time on this one. Probably about two hours going from three slabs to six slabs. Not impressive but I'm still working on it!
