Today in class, we had a bit of fun! We played Save the Zogs, on www.mathplayground.com
Here's what we had to do :
" To rescue the Zogs, you need to learn as much as possible about linear equations and the lines they create. What happens when the slope is zero? What effect does the y intercept have the position of the line? The more you know, the more Zogs you can save! "
So basically, we had to find linear equations, in order to save the Zogs. Also after passing a few levels of the game, the game involves finding the x, y position and rotation of the line. This game is very fun, but involves math which was very interesting. I really liked how the game wasn't too hard to play but was very fun. I really learned a lot from this game, its awesome. That's what we did today!
