Geometry project

ADSentertainmentADSentertainment Member Posts: 397
I have an end of the year project for my Geometry class, one of the choices was to make a game, so I'm going to try and make a game on game salad for the project, but I can't think of a game that incorporates learning geometry while being fun. Does anyone have any ideas?

Having trouble with your game? Sounds like a personal problem.

    Are you a student or a teacher?
    Is this an assignment or something you are making for the class as a learning aid?

    First thing. I think of is a game involving geometric shapes and the associated math that would comprise them. More of a match the math to the shape game.

    I'm a student. All of the students have a project to do, I'm choosing to make a game

    Following RP's lead, I'd ask, for what age group do you want to make the game?

    If you build it for preschool kids you could make simple but nice, drag and drop a shape into the correct hole type puzzle. A correct match could trigger sounds, animations and so on.

    As part of your project you could test it with preschool children, videotape and present that to your teacher.

    Your fun would be making the game.

    About a week. So I'm gonna focus on the basics of it.

    Why dont you make a game similar to world of goo? You can incorporate more geometry elements into it and make it your own :-?

    @tatiang -- Love her too! And she never had a math class in college. Maybe we should contact her and see if she would like to design/storyboard a 'I hate math class' game and we can develop it.

    @ADSentertainment -- you should really watch some of her videos to get some inspiration.
