Battleship in the Coordinate Plane!
- Tim Brzezinski
Creation of this activity was inspired by Alice Keeler's blog article "Game Based Learning: Google Slides Coordinate Plane Battleship".
This game is played JUST LIKE the old Milton-Bradley game BATTLESHIP. Yet here we'll be playing within the context of the COORDINATE PLANE. The goal is to to SINK ALL 5 of your opponent's ships before he/she sinks all 5 of yours. When it is YOUR TURN, be sure to state the following: 1) Quadrant Number 2) The Ordered Pair For example, stating "Quadrant 2: Negative 3 comma 2" indicates the ordered pair (-3, 2). If it's a "MISS", plot a white point on your game board at that location. If it's a "HIT", plot a red point on your game board at that location. Once you sink one of your opponent's ships, he/she needs to announce this fact to you. When this does happen, use the SEGMENT tool to mark a sunken ship. Have fun!
