Growing pattern with translations / coordinates
Mathland Project Ideas:
1. Continue the pattern of translations for three more terms
2. Remix the project's code to make it more efficient (Hint:Look
for repeated patterns in the code and examine how the X and
Y coordinate values change as the pattern is built)
3. Create a new project using a regular polygon that
translates in a way to create a growing pattern.
4. Reflect: Is this growing pattern additive or multiplicative? Why?
Probably the most powerful challenge is #3 above.This
project involves the creation of a mathematical growing pattern
sequence that naturally involves engaging most of the math
processes and a number of expectations from the GSS and PA
