Beautifully written on a junior high school student's reading level. It is clean and neat! I have the students read each line aloud before they type, and the words and phrases used once again reinforce basic reading skills! This unit was well written and gave a great overview of the tools available in today's world. I was VERY IMPRESSED with the math exercises. That they reinforce the math standards just makes for more justification of this course. The examples and diagrams were GREAT!! In fact, this is so well written that a student could follow along without teacher instruction. I enjoyed reading this chapter and frankly learned a few things myself.
