In order to bring the curriculum to life, tenth-grade math students were given a coordinate plane, dry markers and a set of dice. Their mission was to “wipe out” the other team by applying rules of translations and reflections. Students were able to conclude that the closer they set up their players at the beginning, the easier it is to wipe out. Also that every player has a danger zone of 6 (radius).
