Students will be asked to design their own target that is in the shape of a polygon. The target should include a shaded region (bulls eye) that someone is expected to hit. Students are expected to design their target and bulls eye using properties of regular polygons. Once the target is created the student has to calculate the theoretical probability of hitting the shaded region and explain how they arrived at their answer (which diagonals they drew, if they divided the shape into triangles, area formulas used, etc..).
This problem should be done for homework, due the next day.
The next day each student’s target will be swapped with another student and that student will need to calculate the theoretical probability of the target they are handed at random.
