## Geometric Tetris

We are going to demonstrate our geometric learning by creating a game using Scratch.

Tetris – an excellent geometry based game. Can you identify when translations, rotations and reflections happen in this game?

We are going to try a create a game that demonstrates your understanding of some of the geometric principles that we have been learning.

SCRATCH

You must create a game that involves: Translations, Rotations and Reflections.

## Coding a Simulation

Let’s explore some more ideas about probability….

Can we test this law using some coding?

ummmm….. probably?

You are going to try and design a coin flipper…. here are some helpful images.

You will need to design some costumes to allow your coin to change from heads to tails.

Let’s get started and see where we end up.

We will be exploring the idea that experimental probability will eventually meet the theoretical probability.

Here is the code for a turbo flip option:

## Vex Maze Runner Challenge

A Vex Robotics Challenge:

Navigate the Vex Field by coding your Robot.

1. Your BB Bot must start on the Green mark in the middle (ish) of the field.
2. Translate your BB Bot to three of the four outer green marks.

The winner will complete this course in the shortest amount of time.

You have 3 minutes to look at/take a picture/take a measurement of the field.  You will then return to class with your partner and plan the fastest route.  Discussion and debate is important.  How can you justify and explain which route will be the fastest?

You will be successful if:

• you discuss and collaborate with your partner using clear math vocabulary (specific measures, angles, rotate, reverse etc.).
• Problem Solve
• Persevere
• Communicate solutions
• Have Fun!
