Ice shards? What are ice shards?

Another minor complaint - I am told there are files and grammar notes
associated with the lessons I'm doing, but I usually can't find them and
don't know how to look. As it happens, I know the grammar. But still, it
would be good to have access that I haven't figured out.

It's also mildly confusing that the Duolingo that I do on my desktop
computer and the Duolingo that I do on my phone and tablet are vastly
different in set-up and style.
