This is a simple simulation software which teaches how to aim at a ball when playing pool.
You can drag either the cue ball, the object ball or the ghost object ball around to get an instant calculation of the cut angle, the parallel projected ghost ball overlap percentage and the extended aiming line/tangent line markings on the rail. You can also use arrow keys to have finer movements.

Consult with an Instrutor about Aiming
Please post your questions at Ask Pro Instructors section. You will be helped by one or more professional billiard instructors.
While developing prototypes for future versions of CueTable, we have gathered some really a few great ideas from advanced instructors including:
We feel some of the prototype modules can be greatly helpful to people so we are going to provide them to the public.
Helping Billiard Education
Fellow billiard instructors and players are welcome to use this free tool to visualize shots and to encourage further aiming studies.
Bring Billiards into Education
High school students can use this fun teaching aid when they are learning trigonometry. We would like to invite high school teachers and associated educators to work on lesson plan ideas. Together we can bring pool back to school and get more younger minds interested in our sport.
This is our small token to help to the public education of pool and billiard. Please feel free to contact us if you have any good ideas in making this applet even more useful for people.
