My best so far is 5.08 average.

Best single score was on "find the point equidistant from three sides of a triangle" -- 0.8

edit: ARRRRGHGHHG!!! I was on track to a score of about 2.9 when I accidentally double-clicked and scored a 36 on one!

I got a 9.9. It would help if I could figure out what the "point of convergence" is. I totally guess on that b/c I don't actually know what I'm trying to accomplish! Can someone explain what the goal of that one is? Thanks!

I did best at finding the centers-

lower single digit scores on" finding center of circles, bisecting angles, right angles, and finding the midpoint.

I've always known I had no eye for this sort of stuff-- that's why I stink at both pool and golf. I can just never find that "imaginary line" between the ball and the hole. I can calculate the angle of trajectory, but I can't figure out where to aim the ball.

It's also why I use the phrase "pretend this is a ____" whenever I draw a diagram on the board!

Haha...That explains why I can't eyeball the wall when I'm hanging pictures. The first time I got a 23.51. But I redeemed myself the second time with a 4.31. Still not very good though.

Not great for me--I'll need to practice. I'm sending the link to my son--this is the kind of thing he loves!

LOL...I am the worst at animals. The other day a little girl said she liked my walrus. It was a puppy dog drawing.

The point of convergence is where all the lines will intersect...

That's yet another reason I love teaching kindergarteners. They think I'm the best artist ever.

First time I scored a 12 something. I dropped the second one with out realizing I couldn't pick it back up and scored like a 58 or something. Second time I scored a 6.5.
Now I have to go back and see if I can bet that.
