The Gum Drop

Young scholars find the area of three figure by the traditional formulaic methods. Then they count the number of grid squares to double check. They show an intuitive sense of Pick's Algorithm by counting every two boundary squares as one unit. Students practice their conjecture (Pick's Algorithm). They find a black spot on the ground, bigger is better. Young scholars are encouraged to seek irregular figures as opposed to circular ones.
