Abstract: This paper is an introduction to creating and using 3-d anaglyphs in an educational setting. Anaglyphs have been in use since the early 1890’s but recent developments in video games, large screen movies, and dvds have renewed interest in the 3-d format. Many academic fields from geography, engineering, medical, geometry, geology, and others have used anaglyphs in order to show difficult concepts and to enhance instruction. Anaglyph 3-d images can be easily and inexpensively created by teachers and students in the classroom though the use of point and shoot cameras, free software, and low-cost to free anaglyph glasses.
