I have used it in my staff development workshops. The middle school teachers I
worked with liked it. A couple of the teachers used it to develop their
projects. I recall one criticism was that it was too restrictive and it was
easier just to build one from scratch. But I think it can be useful and time
saver to prepare lessons. Unfortunately, it can't help the techer make for an
effective lesson sequence. The fractions example though cute would get a thumbs
down from me. One exception was the link to Cynthia Lanius' web site. :-)
