What you are looking at right now is called a browser window. CalculusQuestTM is designed to be viewed in a single browser window plus a single "pop-up window" which pops up as the result of clicking on certain links or buttons.
The features of windows important to CQ are:
- Pop-Up Windows. Pop-up windows generate
themselves when you click on a link or a button. Please take some time to read about using pop-up windows.
- Colors indicate the nature of pages. All CQ pages have background colors. Here is a color chart with a black background giving the CQ color code. If the colors on your monitor do not roughly correspond to ones named in the chart, or if background colors are missing, all the same, or really obnoxious, please see the section on color in your GUIDE.
Multiple Windows. Some find it convenient to open multiple browser windows. Go ahead and experiment with the effects achievable with two (or more) windows. For example, you might want to load this page into one and a page from the Stage 1 Practice Area into the other. Don't worry if you don't care for so many windows: CQ works very well with one window only.
|To open a second window, choose New Web Browser under the Netscape File menu. |
Tip: If multiple windows are open, their names appear under the Window menu. Selecting the name of a window in this menu brings it to the foreground.
- Email Windows.
CalculusQuestTM is delivered the internet. The internet is a communications network, so you should be able to use CQ to communicate. And you can. Links can bring up an email window waiting and ready for you to compose a message and send it off.
The Communications Center, which is one of the links on the Resources Page, is a good place to look for email links.
Regardless of how you do it, sending and reading email are essential to CalculusQuestTM. You will have to send email as part of the "onward and upward" activities for this Stage.
