Friday Fave for April 14

The Friday Fave took a week off for the big math conference, but is back in action and ready to go with a brand-spanking new activity: Battle Boats.

It’s coordinate-grid practice in the form of a game. Fire away! The results of your tries will teach you something about the location of your partner’s boats. Can you reveal your partner’s boats before they reveal yours?


IMPORTANT NOTE TO TEACHERS! You’ll need to orchestrate a little real-world device (or seat) swapping in order to make the game go. Full instructions in the Teacher Tips and the activity.

While your in a Cartesian kind of mood, you might also have a peek at these other grid-based activities:
