First of all, congratulations to Maria Andersen for winning the Mindomo MindMap of the Week. Now, let’s document my journey over the next 30 minutes or so after I started hunting around the Play and Learn Mind Map. And this is truly interesting, as it might show you exactly how I think sometimes.

I noticed that the Playing to Learn Math Mind Map (a work in progress) did not have any links to games about logarithms (although there is a spot for it).

This site then led me to

Let’s Play Math, where I found a wonderful post about a

Graph-It Game. However, the Graph-It Game only came with one

-9985″>Christmas Example.

So, I started searching Google again for “Plotting Points to Make a Picture Worksheet”. Kaboom! A lot of examples came up, all of which I think could be useful in their own way:

Mystery Graph (Owl) or click here for

even more mystery graphs.

I also found these not so free options, although I am mildly inclined to sign-up for the ‘free trials’ and see what I can pull out of there in my 10 days with them.

1.

Math Crush has even more mystery graphs, and even a Battleship activity.

Overall, I think it was a productive 30 minutes or so, and I hope that you found this post useful. I am starting graphing with my Beginning Algebra students at the end of this week, so I will let you know how incorporating this whole Graph-It/Mystery Picture Idea works out. Although, this is not something totally different than the

What’s Brewing Worksheet that I have been borrowing from

Pete Falzone’s website for a couple of years now. But having more than one ‘picture’ is a good thing, since I am personally getting bored of seeing students draw the same coffee cup semester after semester after semester!
