Description

User selects a number of disks (up to 7), and then an animation showing the disk moves is presented.

Evaluation

Very simple. User has no control over the pacing. It is slow for 7 disks (which one might argue is a good illustration of exponential growth if the user goes through a progression of sizes).

Usage Notes

A Java applet. Input the amount of discs wanted, press create and then start.
