Tool: Out of the Box Review
Developer Review (Not based on classroom experience)
Reviewer: jwm462, Oct 16 2006 11:32:46:320PM
Review based on:
I found it while browsing around in math tools and I didn't understand what the idea behind the tool was, so I decided to investigate.
Appropriate for:
practice of skills and understandings
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
You should have a basic understanding of geometry and area/volume calculations.
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
None, really, just how to drag and click with a mouse.
How hard was it for you to learn?
I had no idea what I was doing when I first used it. After a couple calculations, however, I realized that it was demonstrating the relationship of height and width to an object's volume, and that changing the ratio of height to width will change the volume.
Ability to meet my goals:
Very Effective
Recommended for:

Geometry: Perimeter, area, and volume
