This is a nice animation.

One question- the animation has a copyright to EdMM Interactive Resources, dated 2003. Were you responsible for the creation of this resource? If so, bearing in mind the changes in Flash since then (nearly 15 years), what would you change (or what could Flash improve).

Also, how easy is it to create animations like this. It certainly looks effective (and would be good showing a class)
