Suppose a student plots a set of points with hollow circles and then I want one of those circles (-1,-16) to become filled in when the student plots that point again. Is there anyway to do that?
Its in slide #2 in the activity linked below, but the points need to be plotted on the slide #1 for there to be an issue.
Where are they plotting it “again”?
Also, I think you meant “ordered pair” not “coordinate” in your Slide 2 question. That or plural “coordinates”.
Yes, I mean an ordered pair. They plot points on a table on slide one (with hollow circles) on slide #1 and the points carry over to slide #2, but on slide #2 after they draw on the sketch, a box appear that I want them to enter the ordered pair (-1,-16), but since this point is already plotted nothing changes on the graph.
I changed the code a bit so it would plot if the point is (-1,-15) because nothing is plotted there, but not (-1,-16) because the point is already plotted from the previous slide.
You could use a button for entering the ordered pairs. Use
capture to get the x and y coordinates, and set
numberLists, X and Y, in the graph on Slide #1 to the histories for the captures. Plot (X,Y) and set to closed dots.
Thanks so much. I actually decided to plot a circle which is only a little bigger than a point to get the effect I want, but your advice has helped me make some really wonderful activities.
