Using Dynaminc Diagrams to Motivate and Assist Problem Solving by Algebra

Dynamic diagrams can provide stimulating teaching and learning opportunities that may lead to improved understandings of the concepts of variables and functions, afford a clearer understanding of the meaning of problem components and motivate more and better use of algebra as an aid to their solution. Presenting diagrams of this type in a book, out of necessity, makes them static rather than dynamic.  Here we can only describe, rather than visually demonstrate, how these diagrams are engaging, dynamic and changeable.
