Title:

    Incorporating Higher Education Computer Animation Principles into Primary Education Math Systems

Abstract:


    Animation is founded on mathematical systems and equations. To effectively engage middle school math students in a problem with tangible results, the authors developed a project involving both college undergraduates and eighth grade students. The purpose of this project was to engage both levels of students in an activity that utilized concepts in mathematics (algebra, ratio, proportion, estimation) and computer generated visualization.
