I would be sure to lay a foundation of work with the Cartesian plane and
technical vocab. prior to allowing the students to use a dynamic tool. Then,
have a few standard problems that everyone works on, and then decide what
direction you will let them go as far as being open ended.

Some options might be:
Have each student design a graph, and then a partner declares the parameter.

Have each student WRITE a problem, and then trade problems and have the partner
use the dynamic tool to graph the solution.

Have fun!
