2  Designed to teach Cartesian Coordinates, symmetry, geometry, and iteration through the creation of Native American bead art  Students use six functions that place virtual beads on a grid 2game2learn Jonathan Curry

3 3  Places a singles bead ◦ X ◦ Y  2 values

4 game2learn Jonathan Curry4  Places a line of beads ◦ X1 ◦ Y1 ◦ X2 ◦ Y2  4 values (X1,Y1) (X2,Y2)

5 game2learn Jonathan Curry5  Places a rectangle of beads between two points ◦ X1 ◦ Y1 ◦ X2 ◦ Y2  4 values (X1,Y1) (X2,Y2) (X1,Y1) (X2,Y2)

6 game2learn Jonathan Curry6  Places a triangle of beads between three points ◦ X1 ◦ Y1 ◦ X2 ◦ Y2 ◦ X3 ◦ Y3  6 values (X1,Y1) (X2,Y2) (X3,Y3)

7 game2learn Jonathan Curry7  Draws a line of beads then iteratively redraws that line  A Beads  Starting at point B (B.x, B.y)  Add C to one end  Add D to the other end  For E rows in total  In a Certain Direction  7 values

8 game2learn Jonathan Curry8  Draws a single bead then iteratively creates a triangle ◦ Starting at a point F (F.x, F.y) ◦ Every G rows ◦ Add H beads to both sides ◦ For I rows in total ◦ In a Certain Direction  6 values

9  Added Custom Puzzle Mode  Competition  BeadLoom Game is more effective than Virtual Bead Loom 9game2learn Jonathan Curry

10  Physical instruction  Catch common errors associated with BLG game2learn Jonathan Curry10

11  Reengineering BLG code  Visual approximation  Time constraints game2learn Jonathan Curry11
