Frequently Asked Questions

1.  How does CalcuNATION protect my anonymity and privacy?

The website is setup for anyone to use.  You are not obligated to provide any information that you do not wish to share.  If you choose to submit a calculation or lesson plan, your name you will be recognized as just your first name and last initial.  (Example:  John Smith would be John S.)  If you wish to remain anonymous, that is no problem, simply submit your calculation or submission with anonymous as your name.  

Both the calculation submission page and the lesson plan submission page have a note to enter “anonymous” as your name if you wish.
