AREA OF TRIANGLES AND RECTANGLES

A logical extension to our triangle coordinates and classify game was finding the area of triangles.

TRIANGLES: PLOT COORDINATES AND CLASSIFY GAME

After the Mathletes became experts at plotting coordinate points in either 1 or 4 quadrants, I created a game that would allow them to plot three points to create a triangle and then classify it as either acute, obtuse, or right and then classify it as either scalene or isosceles.

Coordinate Plane Pictures: Eagle, Homer, Bugs Bunny and much more

The most important three factors in real estate (buying property) is location, location, location. The same is true of coding images on a computer. Every pixel has a specific location ordered by a horizontal (x) and vertical (y) axis.

Preparation and Actual International Contest

Each child followed my best practices by completing all or most of the 20 questions in the practice test, self-graded and identified the few questions that they still wanted to master. We spent the first part of class reviewing these problems and my best practices approach. 

Mathematics Challenge International Contest Preparation

We are working on strategies to solve challenging logic word-problems leading up to the Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC). The NLMC  is a semiannual problem solving contest for elementary and middle school students including tens of thousands of children worldwide.
