First year high school math. (What used to be algebra.) They had an interesting assignment.
In their book, they had 18 different graphs. They were to note a feature of some of the graphs, and then they were to list all the graphs that had that feature.
Once they had generated a list, other students in the class were to guess what feature they'd noticed by only looking at the list.
It was a group assignment. I had to explain it a few times.
As I walked the room, one girl asked the same questions. I explained it again.
"Oh, this is like math charades..."
Yep. Pretty much like that.
