Click on the following tabs for a summary of what the students will do and learn in each lab.
Unit Standards will be addressed in every Lab within the Unit.
Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.A.2: Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
How Standard is Achieved: In Lab 1, students will build and use a coordinate plane in the Battle Boats game. During the Mid-Play break, students will discuss how using a coordinate plane made this game possible including the challenges and successes. In Part 2, students will play the Battle Boats game with a partner applying points on the coordinate plane in different rounds of the game.
