Attaching the pdf animation I produced from your images and also the tex 
source. These are the steps I did in my Linux machine:

1. Convert the animated gif to a sequence of pdf's. This was done using
    ImageMagick, using the command:

         convert gifanimata.gif -coalesce animate_%d.pdf

2. Move all the pdf images onto a directory named images

3. Write the tex file attached

4. Compile using pdflatex

Note that we have to crop the right side considerably to accommodate the 
picture in A4 paper. This could be avoided, by choosing the frame suitably 
in the program generating the gif (GeoGebra?)

Hope this helps
