Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Coordinate Grid Task: Battleship - Section 1: Opener

 

As I begun this activity I was able to engage students because most of them had prior knowledge of the game Battleship.  Even if they hadn’t played it, they have seen it.  Not only did I engage the students in the upcoming activity, I also got them to see the game in a different way.  I don’t think any of the students had previously thought of the game as a simple coordinate grid.  When I put the game in the geometry context, the students were quickly able to see the connection and application of the mathematical concepts they were learning.
