## Pixels Points, Segments, and Lines (Math)

by

### Introduction

The goal of this lesson, Math Pixels, Points, Segments, and Lines is to clarify resolution and to introduce another method for creating digital art. With the use of vectors graphics and anchor points, students can create art that can be resized to any size, even mural size. Students will use the coordinate plane and their prior knowledge of equations to define these vector paths. Students will use domain to define the beginning and ending point (anchor points) for these vector graphics.

Note-In all parts of this lesson, students are working in groups. I suggest you make the best decision on assigning students to groups of 3-4. I personally use random selection and my class groups change after each project. This encourages students to get to know each other and work together with different learning styles.

Continually assess students as they progress through the lesson using questioning strategies.
