Well, @druinok shared this amazing find from Dollar Tree!
First of all, let me just say, JEALOUS! But soon after, she shared an idea from #tlapmath Walk the Plank ideas to make lessons Pirate-Worthy. So, being on the road home from a visit to my brother’s near St Louis, I had plenty of time to think. Hmmmm.
Here are a couple of thoughts.
Roll the dice, generate 3 sets of coordinates. Prove what type of triangle they form. Find the perimeter.
OR roll 6 sets of coordinates. Which triangle is “closest to being equilateral”?
Create coordinates for a quadilateral. Prove what type of quadrilateral.
In a group, compare your quadrilaterals. Who has the one closest to being a square? Rectangle? Or other polygon. Why?
Use your 8 coorindates and can you arrange (x,y) pairs to create quadilateral closest to _____?
