Freddie Short has a new shortcut to find the area of any polygon on the geoboard that has no pegs on the interior. His formula is like a rule for an In-Out in which the In is the number of pegs on the boundary and out is the area of the figure.

Sally Shorter has a shortcut for any geoboard polygon with exactly four pegs on the boundary. All you have to tell her is how many pegs are in the interior and she can use her formula to find the are immediately.

Frashy Shortest says she has the best formula in which you make any polygon on the geoboard and tell her both the number of pegs in the interior and the number of pegs on the boundary and her formula will give you the area immediately.

Your goal in this POW is to find Frashy’s super formula but tou might want to begin with her friends formulas.

1 Begin with Freddy’s formula

a. Find a formula for the area of polygons with no pegs in the interior. The number of boundaries is the In and the Out is the area in the In-Out table.

b. Find a different formula that works for polygons with one peg in the interior.

c. Pick a number bigger than one and find the area with that number of pegs in the interior.

d. Do more cases like question c

2.Find Sally’s formula and others like it, as described in 2a through 2c.

a. Find a formula for the area of polygons with exactly four pegs on the boundary.

b. Pick a number either than four and find the area of polygons with that number of pegs on the boundary.

c. Do more cases like of 2b

When you have finished work on Questions 1 and 2, look for a super formula that works for all figures. Your formula should have two inputs and the output should be the area.
Question #1 a-d

a. I first started creating polygons on my geoboard paper with no interior pegs and found the number of exterior pegs and the area. After creating 6 shapes on my geoboard paper I created an in-out table.

POW Write Up; JustCount the Pegs
Problem Statement:
For the POW: JustCount the Pegs, I had to try and find the best formula possible for finding the area of any polygon on a geoboard. There are 3 different formulas you have to find. The first two are formulas that will combine together and help you find the best or “superformula”. In order to find the first...

...POW8
Problem Statement-
For this POW, our task was to find the best formula for finding the area of any polygon that is formed on a geoboard. In order to do this, there are two formulas given to help you. One tells how to get the area of a polygon based on the number of pegs on the boundary. This works as an In-Out table, where In is the amount of pegs on the boundary, and Out is the area. The other formula tells...

...Problem Statement
My task was to find 3 equations, that would give me an answer, if I had certain information. The first was to find one that if you knew that there were four pegs on the boundary, and none on the interior, you could get the area. The second was if you knew that there were 4 pegs on the boundary, and you knew how many were on the interior, you could get the area. And last, if you had the number on the interior, and the number on the boundary, you...

...Toyota: Sudden Acceleration or Bad Drivers or Pesky Floor Mats?
Introduction and History of SUA
Audi barely survived its sudden-acceleration problem in the 1980s, When about 1,000 Audi 5000 owner said their cars were suddenly accelerating. Audi would issue five recalls on the cars before it and the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration (NHSTA) were able to conclude that it was driver error, the accidental placement of the foot on the accelerator instead of the brake....

...detrimental to our government or our society. Its unethical and immoral to allow only some Americans that right, marriage is a constitutional right not a privilege. I support gay marriage except I just call it marriage. I took a nap today, not a gay nap. I went to school this morning, not to “gay” school, just school. "Regular" marriage and "Gay" marriage are like bikini tops and bras. The exact same thing, but only one is allowed in public.
There are many...
