Print Friendly and PDF When the graphic below comes up, just click on the start button. See what happens. Then try to imagine a logical way that the shape you see could be constructed (graphed, for the layperson.)
Only when you are truly stumped, should you click on "show all'"

Creations such as this one could be tremendous math teaching tools and motivators, if only the powers-that-be running our schools would give teachers the opportunity and technology to make it happen.

The above creation was made using FREE software (GeoGebra) readily available on almost all platforms. The complete file is available here.

Unfortunately, I cannot see such things being done in a New York State classroom until our dear governor gets off his high horse. Maybe he could challenge schools rather than try to control them.
