Hi Everyone,

I know many of you probably have tutorials and techniques for teaching students how to use Mathematica before giving them projects. What are your favorite ways to explain function options (like plot options)? It seems like the Classroom Assistant has helped students navigate this a lot, but should we consider making more widgets like the one linked below?

This is designed to be a mouse-driven interface for 2D plots, and it has a button that creates the input once the user has experimented and arrived at the type of plot they want.

thanks!
Kelvin
