I spent 5 min. browsing, but I do feel that the materials accurately present
concepts and models that are educationally significant. I feel there is a high
level of effectiveness for enhancing teacher and student learning. I found it
easy to use this software.

I spent about 30 minutes looing through this site. I like the idea of having
kids use 3-D glasses because it is a fun activity students will enjoy. Students
can definitely learn from this material and all the materials are easy to use no
matter what grade it may be used for.

Technical Remarks:

This site offers many opportunities to use 3-D glasses. If you don't have any, instructions for making them are available at the site.
