A teaching tool on soil erosion and conservation. Students are initially asked to estimate the magnitude of soil erosion in the US, their surrounding area and place of residence. Then the program calculates the amount of erosion on one or more fields dependent on the user's local soil type and climate .Concludes by repeating the initial questions, enabling students to assess changes in their knowledge levels.
