Classroom use in Courses and Topics: Algebra: Number Systems |

Duration of classroom use: One Class |

What did students learn? I showed students the tool briefly in class, after discussing Venn diagrams and symbols associated with set manipulation. I posted a link to the tool from my course web page. |

What did students do with the resource? At least one student used the tool at home to practice ideas about set combinations. |

How hard was it for students to use? Very Easy |

Appropriate for: practice of skills and understandings, applications of a concept or technique |

What math does one need to know to use the resource? Symbols of set manipulation (union, intersection, difference, complement). |

What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource? None. |

What extra things must be done to make it work? Nothing. |

How hard was it for you to learn? Very Easy |

Explanation: No problem... only improvement I would suggest would be a less drastic "erase" button ("Clear" erases everything). |

Ability to meet my goals: Effective |
