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 in an activity that combined concepts in mathematics (algebra, ratio, proportion, estimation) and computer-generated visualization.
