A Butterfly Effect...

Print Friendly and PDF
Short extension of yesterday's post that merely allows you to change the direction of one of the moving points. A simple change creates a new shape. If I was still in the classroom, I would use the creative possibilities of GeoGebra as an aid in teaching the vocabulary and basics of Geometry in lower grades, and use it as a tool in posing questions and problems in the upper grades. All along one must keep in mind that GeoGebra is just a tool, not a teacher.
While I work on this I cannot but cringe at the lack of time teachers get during the school year to create, modify, improve, and implement any of their own works. Can't have creativity in a  "right-answer" subject such as math!
