to leave, but I gave it a little bit of time. As I got furter the material
started to get better and better, so I only gave this sit a 3, because I feel if
it was more exsiting in the beging of the sit, than a lot more people would
enjoy it. Other than that it was very educational, and well put together.

bad at all. After briefly reading the instructions of the game I spent about 20
minutes trying it out. Of course not knowing how to beat the computer at its
own game, it was a bit difficult for me. The material its self was easy to
read, but as I was scrolling down some more I ran into some very complex
equations, clueless as to what they mean. Overall as a game it was not that
hard, but thought was difinitely a factor. To use this program as a teaching
tool is not that impressive, and I do believe it was meant for further advanced
mathematical people, but this is easy to use for a first time use.
