Teacher, do your students have access to computers such as tablets, iPads or Laptops? This page was really designed for projection on a whiteboard but if you really want the students to have access to it here is a concise URL for a version of this page without the comments: Transum.org/go/?Start=February3 However it would be better to assign one of the student interactive activities below. 

Here is the URL which will take them to the interactive version of this activity with 30 different variations.
