Find out about using dynamic geometry to get your students building virtual machines. See student-engineered trains, oil derricks, and Rube Goldberg machines. Leave with concrete building blocks to get started. Before they know it, they’ll be writing parametric equations, using circular trig and modeling motion. They might even discover calculus.
