I picked this topic because I had learned about it while watching a math series called "For All Practical Purposes". In it it described Euler Circuts as a graph that could solve problems like route efficiency so long as it had an even number of valences. I didn't fully understand the concept then, so I wanted to see if this application could help me better understand Euler Circuts. Verdict: The site wasn't as helpful as I thought it would be. Sure, it was interactive and engaging, but it did not really break down the concept of Euler Circuts. Overall it was a bit confusing and asked more questions than anything, but that could just be me.

Technical Remarks:

I think they should create a website for beginners. It seems as if this site is made for people who are already familiar with Euler and Hamilton Circuts. When material is as confusing as this, it scares away people who want to learn more but just cannot seem to grasp the concept. It's quite intimidating.
Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes (I started to get frustrated)
