The Hodograph visuals and exercises were instrumental in applying demonstrated knowledge of the lesson's training.

I think this lesson will be very useful as a future meteorologist! I think I could benefit from using hodographs in everyday life.

Very interesting lesson.

Never understood Hodograph's until now, I thought it was something extremely complicated but this makes it seem quite simple.

Very good lesson. It is a little technical so a complete study of the lesson is required.

I have to say I struggled with the lessons present as preparation for the quiz. I would respectfully suggest that this lesson may have tried to do a little much a little quickly

an interesting course that helps a lot with understanding how to use Hodographs

Again I feel like it needs to be more of a beginner level. A lot of stuff was briefly explained and I had to turn to the internet for help

more explanation on the polar setup.. some coordinate systems are reversed.

Although this is a "Skill 1" module, DO NOT be misled into thinking you will be done in 10 minutes. This is a difficult module so be prepared to put some real time and effort into it and take the quiz more than once. However, the benefit is once you have a working knowledge of how to read it, the information will serve invaluable to you and adds one more tool to your forecasting arsenal especially if you deal with a lot of convective weather situations. It's worth it!!!

I had to do twice with over 2 pages of notes but I am someone with prior training, hard for a level one but it is certainly worth going through if you want to learn how to read a hodograph.

I also retook the quiz several times to get the certificate. I found the module challenging, but interesting and it helped me to understand a great deal about storm structure, prediction, and vertical wind shear. Even with a prior understanding of these factors, I gained more knowledge than I thought from this lesson.

I retook the quiz several times to get the certificate. While doing so, I notice a discrepancy for the true/false question "If the wind changes both direction and speed with increasing height, the resulting hodograph will always be curved." Each time I answered "true", which was sometimes scored as correct, and sometimes scored as incorrect. Aside from this, I rather enjoyed this module.

Chaining vectors on a polar chart is not an intuitive process for most of us. This module had some good interactive drills embedded in the presentation. Would like to have seen at least one more dealing with repositioning the axes to isolate storm motion and storm relative winds.
