Here are the two most recent comments:
============================= This is one of the most beautiful and practical integrations of mathematics and technology that I have ever seen. What makes this most amazing for me is the real time feedback students get to help them adjust their ability to interpret functions. I have done similar activities with paper and pencil, and even with graphingstories.com and this is a whole new level of incredible that has not previously existed.
This is a great time to be in mathematics education.
===================================== I find this lesson fascinating especially because my county is providing oneonone device to every student by 2018. I was having a difficult time envisioning how lessons should be when that change is implemented, and this lesson just provided a perfect example!
