1. Time Spent: 15 minutes
2. Content Quality: Descriptions of what the package can do and examples are
provided. The student can make adjustments to parameters in the package and see
the effect of these changes in the simulation. A good resource for
incorporating a visual component.
3. Teaching Effectiveness: This package is geared toward making a concept easier
to understand through visualization.
4. Ease of Use: Easy to follow links and downloads.

Technical Remarks:

The user will need to download the application and manual (no cost).
