For a couple of years now, I have been producing annotated images in GeoGebra to illustrate problems. We know that problems pulled from real applications are more engaging, but my lower-level students often do not have the ability to transfer measurements from a verbal description to an image. And for all students, the amount of text needed for the task of describing the mathematical structures is daunting. So, I do this:
Going crackers! Brainstorm some questions we can ask our students about these crackers, and then we’ll get to work in GeoGebra.
