coordinate grids

What we have lately have been doing in math is.... COORDINATE GRIDS!  Sometimes we went to Geo logo and did these game whatevers. It's kinda fun. This one is polygons and coordinate grids. It was sorta ironic beacuse before we were doing poly gons in math. We recently started coordinate grids. Any way, we had this paper grid in ourblue math folders, we had to draw a polygons picture in them. Then we went to Geo logo and did the grid on the computer. It's kinda harder than it looks. Ok, so your this cutsie little turtle, and when the turtle moves, line come from behind it like tracks. That's what makes the polygons. now here's the hard part.  We had to look at our picture and see where it starts. Heres an example of what you type in the command center: jumpto [-30 10]

Then, you have to do setxy INSTEAD of jumpto. Then the next numbers. I didn't even finish my doggie polygon! it was hard enough drawing it! Think for a moment. What does a polygon have to have, and what can't it? The ear was hard. i hand to kinda go down and make a rectangle on the face with out a top. Then to day we did another verison. It was WAY harder. No coordinate grid. So we had to do left right and stuff. We started out with making a suare the na weird triangle. I was on my way to the last line of my square, i ran out of room in the command center. i made room, then some how screwed it up and i had to make the next to lines again! And it's so hard to get the lines staright! I  once again did not finish. At least I still think battle ship is still fun.
