"The simulations were are really good alternative to real lab work."
"Since the class doesn't have a lab, I felt the simulations helped give us a feel for the techniques."
"Those simulations provided some 'hands on' experience."
"Almost a hands-on experience."
"...you could actually see the change is a result of changing parameters."
"It's easy to observe the changes of data if I change the value."
"I can see the influence over the whole system of varying one parameter..."
"...helps me to see what effects would be observed under certain circumstances."
"Every simulation helps".
"All of them [helped me]."
"Beer's Law deviations [helped me]."
"Yes, especially the Spectroscopy of Atomic Absorption."
"Yes! (If not the simulations themselves, the accompanying questions)."
"I can make more understanding of the things you have taught to us in class."
"The simulations helped considerably to apply the concepts learned. ... for some of them, I was not perfectly clear on all the concepts."
"They did help a great deal (except the fluorescence one - that was confusing)."
"Fluorescence [simulation] was difficult but helpful."
"The standard addition simulation was the worst...I didn't get the results I expected."
"It is helpful to play with this kind of simulation, but some analytical work on paper wouldn't hurt too..."
"More detail on what to expect."
"More detailed instructions."
"At the end of every topic, discuss the problems for every question on the simulation in detail."
"Indicate when it's OK just to 'eyeball it'."
"The Monte Carlo simulation seemed hard to optimize, perhaps due to the number of variables that could be changed."
"Sometimes the notations of the variables are difficult to keep straight, but I guess there is not way to improve this...."Number of unique visits since May 17, 2008:
