I <i>do</i> think that "why?" is the obvious next question, though. A precalculus kid should be able to grind out a few cases that the algebra kid simply trust geogebra for. However, I believe a formal proof is going to have to wait until calculus. <br /><br /><b>CalcDave</b> I'd love to see vertical articulation get to the point where we can keep adding to each others' foundations on a single problem. The algebra kids will already know the answer, but figuring out how and why will take a while.David Coxhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06277427735527075341noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5964889903484807623.post-14348967773528630432010-08-03T08:43:29.257-07:002010-08-03T08:43:29.257-07:00This sort of thing (introducing early and working ...This sort of thing (introducing early and working up to a finished product years later) could be done with all sorts of problems! Reminds me of this post:<br /><br />http://glsr.wordpress.com/2010/07/05/the-calculus-carrot/<br /><br />It would be fun to get one or two big/exciting problems that you could introduce in Algebra 1 or PreAlgebra or something and refer back to for the next few years while the students get more and more pieces of the puzzle over the next few years.CalcDavehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14039458440867020542noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5964889903484807623.post-26941854333780510042010-08-03T08:42:28.830-07:002010-08-03T08:42:28.830-07:00So what would you say to the student who is totall...So what would you say to the student who is totally convinced by the Geogebra applet, and sees no need for further investigation/exploration?
