Varying the size with distance from screen
The original size of each of the cutOuts in the plotting panel is 2 by 2.
As the distance of the cutout from the screen increases, the size of the cutout will increase by a certain factor using the following formula:
new_size = cur_size * factor
factor = (0.1 * distFromScreen + 0.9)
The lengths along the x and y axis should always be equal to maintain a sqaure aspect ratio.
(Note that the minimum distance from screen is 1)
The opacity ranges from 0 to 1, with steps of 0.1.
1 is completely opaque, while 0 is completely transparent.
The light source is currently a circle in the plotting panel. This can be ammended in HtmlView, if desired.
CSS Layout of the controlPanel
The layout is made using CSS Grid with 6 columns. For more information, please view:

Sample Learning Goals
- The opacity of the cutouts
- The distance of the cutouts from the screen

Hopefully, this simulation can suit the pedagogical needs of teachers, as well as facilitate the understanding of students in trying to comprehend the complexities of this system.
