Ruth Hilton25 October 2017 - 05:38The links listed above don't work for me either. Neither does the one in your comment.

Jim Noble25 October 2017 - 11:42Hi again, OK - The link is not working for me either now. The illuminations one is though... illuminations.nctm.org

Veronica Diaz1 November 2017 - 14:39Yes, but the illuminations doesn't go with the instructions provided.

Jim Noble8 November 2017 - 16:41Hi all, so I am struggling to find this applet and so obviously the activity needs re-writing. I am going to re do it with my own version of a dynamic scattergraph. apologies for inconvenience in the mean time.
