## 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.
