Extremely happy with today’s course. Everything Morris showed us today was helpful and useful for 7-11 students. Learned how to construct dynamic worksheet for calculus, great visual demonstration to prove how Math works.

Good content, reasonable pacing. Providing a booklet with the instructions for each component would help keep things moving.
