Day 69–Shape Capture

photoNot the best pic today.  A short Wednesday period and talkative students made it hard to introduce a new game and actually get time to play “Shape Capture,” but it’s a fun game for practicing graphing. And somewhere in my file cabinet, I’ve got an adaptation incorporating area–thanks to collaboration with my colleague, Sadie Estrella, a couple of years ago.  🙂

Here’s the link to the game which is sort of Battleship style.  Each student plots 4 points to create a quadrilateral.  Then they take turns guessing points–trying to determine the vertices and shape plotted by their opponent.  The different marks tell if the point guessed is on a vertex, the perimeter, inside, or outside of the figure graphed by your opponent.
