Do the Activity
  1. Open a new sketch in Geometer's Sketchpad
    • Under FILE choose New Sketch
  1. Next we want an X-Y coordinate grid which means a vertical Y axis that is perpendicular to a horizontal X axis.
    • Under GRAPH... show axes 
    • Under GRAPH show grid
  1. Change scale by dragging the point at (0,1) along the x-axis toward the origin. Create a grid that ranges from -10 to +10 on each axis (if possible.)
  2. Plot the points below on the grid. Connect the points in each part with line segments. (DO NOT CONNECT Part 1 to part 2, etc.) When you finish you will have a picture of Morris.
