Subject:   Putting the cart before the horse

To borrow a phrase from faithful discusser (is that a word?) Kilroy, this applet
puts the cart before the horse.  It would be useful for learning if used while
learning.  However, it cannot be used while learning because there is nothing to
learn on the page.  A teacher or other knowledgable person must be present to
work the applet into the discussion.
