The Construction Crew Game
- Gerry Stahl
Welcome to the Construction Crew Game The Construction Crew Game is a series of challenges for your team to construct interesting and fun geometric figures. Many of the figures will have hidden features and your team will learn how to design them. So put together your Construction Crew with three, four or five people from anywhere in the world who want to play the game together online. Note: GeoGebraBooks do not yet support collaboration by a team working together on the same figures and chatting about them online. So you can sit around one computer with your team or you can work on your own and discuss what you are doing with other people. Maybe you can use screen-sharing software or the Virtual Math Teams collaboration environment. The Construction Crew Game consists of several levels of play, each with a set of challenges to do together in a special online construction zone. The challenges in the beginning levels do not require any previous knowledge about geometry or skill in working together. Playing the challenges in the order they are given will prepare you with everything you need to know for the more advanced levels. Be creative and have fun. See if you can invent new ways to do the challenges. Try each challenge at your level until everyone in your crew understands how to meet the challenges. Then move on to the next level. Take your time until everyone has mastered the level. Then agree as a team to go to the next level. Most levels assume that everyone has mastered the previous level. The levels become harder and harder -- see how far your team can go. Enjoy playing, exploring, discussing and constructing!
