Description

FREE VERSION ONLY WORKS IN Microsoft EXPLORER BECAUSE IT USES FLASH - NEW VERSION THAT WORKS ON ALL DEVICES CAN BE FOUND HERE.

NOTE: The interactive animation requires Adobe Flash to be "allowed" in your browser. The document includes a link for how to do this in Chrome. This is easier in Edge and Explorer.

Flash will no longer be supported by Chrome or Firefox (and probably other browsers) after 2020 which is why the product is now free for your students to enjoy until then.
