This online challenge activity offers students a look into the world of computer animation. It features a simplified explanation of how one image can be transformed into another image using digitization and explains the mathematics concept of the average. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. Related questions ask students to consider other situations that require the use of percentages to measure change. Students are encouraged to make a flip book animation and to experiment with morphing the letter A into the letter B. Police identi-kits, computer screen size, and the process of motion picture animation are a few other topics touched upon in this activity. Answers to all problems are included.
