Instructional Ideas

  • Incorporate translations while learners are being graphed
  • Have the class calculate the distance between points, or the area as an extension activity
  • Some students can do multiple shapes if the class size is smaller
  • Use chalk instead of rope for the coordinate plane
Classroom Considerations

  • Coordinates for the problems and graph paper only use the first quadrant
  • Laminating cards prior to use is recommended 
Pros

  • Promotes outdoor learning
  • Team work is necessary to graph the accurate shape
Cons

  • None
