So... I'm not a math teacher, but I was trying to show off how great the Illuminations Dynamic Paper resource could be in a training session the other day. The only problem was, I would select the type of paper, put in my parameters, and then download the PDF. All the PDF shows is a blank page with Dynamic paper and the name blank on the top.
When I try the jpeg option, I get a message that says work space is empty.
There are a couple of possibilities here. Hopefully it is as simple as using the "Add" button that you will find in the upper part of the dynamic paper window. After you have chosen the type of graph that you want to use and set all of the parameters for it, select the "Add" button to see a sample show up in the workspace to the right. Then, using either the PDF or JPG buttons should give you a document or image with your selected graph.
Now, it is also possible that you have done that and it still isn't working. If at is the case, then it is likely some issue with Java or scripting issues in your browser. If this is the case, let me know the operating system and browser you are using and I will investigate this more.
