Review based on:
I discovered the tool at random in order to review a tool for a class that I am taking.
introduction to a concept
I think this tool is somewhat helpful. Though, what I dislike about it is the fact that it has no direction. There seems to be no instruction on the page that the tool is on and for someone with little or no understanding of exponents it may be difficult to see the relationship between the objects on the screen.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
You don't need any math to use the tool, but it would help to know algebra in order to understand this tool.
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
Be able to click the mouse.
How hard was it for you to learn?
There seems to be nothing to learn about it except to drag and drop "blocks" which represent variables or constants.
Ability to meet my goals:
Algebra: Properties of Reals, Use of Variables
Tool: Algebra Tiles Review
