"The method in which Gustafson introduces graphing in general is outstanding. What is truly unique from what I have seen is the introduction of non-linear graphs so early. It will let students know that graphs are more than just straight lines."
"The Self-Check boxes are very worthwhile because of the instant feedback which they give."
