Learn how to use The Geometer’s Sketchpad to model situations for problem solving. In “Ships in the Fog”, participants will find applications to use in classes ranging from Algebra I to Precalculus. Beginning with graphing points, we will translate points to establish a vector path, create a table of values, and test conjectures to solve the problem. Take a look at Sketchpad from a different perspective!
This is an intermediate-level Sketchpad webinar, so some previous knowledge and use of Sketchpad is assumed.
