You're going to do a connect the dots picture today! Follow the directions to plot points and then connect them into polygons of a certain color. You should have a recognizable picture in the end!
You can also find the directions linked in your agenda if you prefer having them open in another window.

## 1) Plot the following points in order

A (-3, 7) | B (-2, 2) | C (2, 2) | D (3, 7) | E (5, 5) | | |

F (5, 2) | G (4, -1) | H (0, -2) | I (-4, -1) | J (-5, 2) | K (-5, 5) |

## Create your first polygon by connecting the points in order

Polygon(A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, A)
Then change the color of the polygon to yellow

## 2) Plot the following points in order

L (-6, 0) | M (-6, 6) | N (-5, 8) | O (-4, 9) | P (-1, 10) | |

Q (1, 10) | R (4, 9) | S (5, 8) | T (6, 6) | U (6, 0) | |

## Create your first polygon by connecting the points in order

Polygon(A, B, C, D, E, F, G, U, T, S, R, Q, P, O, N, M, L, I, J, K, A)
Then change the color of the polygon to red

## 3) Plot the following points in order

V (-6, -2) | W (-4, -4) | Z (-2, -7) | A_{1} (2, -7) | |

B_{1} (4, -4) | C_{1} (6, -2) | D_{1} (3, -2) | E_{1 }(-3, -2) | |

## Create your third polygon by connecting the points in order

Polygon(L, I, E

_{1}, H, D_{1}, G, U, C_{1}, B_{1}, A_{1}, Z, W, V, L) Then change the color of the polygon to yellow## 4) Plot the following points in order

F_{1} (-3, -7) | G_{1} (-2, -9) | H_{1} (2, -9) |

I_{1} (3, -7) | J_{1} (2, -8) | K_{1} (-2, -8) |

## Create the following polygons by connecting the points in order

Polygon(Z, K

_{1}, J_{1}, A_{1, }Z) Color this polygon red Polygon(F_{1}, G_{1}, H_{1}, I_{1}, J_{1}, K_{1}, F_{1}) Color this polygon yellow## 5) Plot the following points in order

L_{1 }(-5, -6) | M_{1} (-4, -8) | N_{1} (-2, -10) |

O_{1} (2, -10) | P_{1} (4, -8) | Q_{1} (5, -6) |

## Create the following polygons by connecting the points in order

Polygon(V, W, Z, K

_{1}, F_{1}, G_{1}, H_{1}, I_{1}, J_{1}, A_{1}, B_{1}, C_{1}, Q_{1}, P_{1}, O_{1}, N_{1}, M_{1}, L_{1}) Color this polygon red Polygon(I, E_{1}, H) Color this polygon cyan Polygon(H, D_{1}, G) Color this polygon cyan## New Resources
