continuous graphing and discreet graphing. Let students try to see how they can
get different mappings on the graph. Let the students experiment  change the
direction the runners go, start the runners at different intervals, and let them
race, etc.
It was fun to see how students could make up their own questions, ie.: how can
you get parallel lines?, how can you get perpendicular lines?, how can they
(the runners) get to the end at the same time? Have some students make the
graph, cover up the answer and have other students try to find out how they came
up with that graph.
