Classroom applications:

1) Display the graph paper image from the first link for the whole class. Then, with your interactive white board pen or with a marker after projecting the image on a dry erase board, place a dot somewhere on the paper. Tell your students that in four minutes you are going to erase the dot and turn off the projector. Then, you are going to project the image again and call on a student, and you expect them to be able to place the dot in the same location.
*Note: Brainstorming for ideas on how to find the location to place the dot can be done individually, with partners, or in groups.
