Each of four ants located in the plane crawls continuously toward the next ant. What paths do the ants describe?The sketches and scripts in this folder show how to investigate this with Sketchpad. Try generalizing to more ants, or (?) fewer ants.
This is a completed sketch. Move the starting places of the ants to see the paths change. Here is an idea of what the sketch looks like:
Use this sketch as a starting place from which to run the script. This enables you to set your own number of steps that the ants take.
Use this script in conjuntion with "Chase Four Starter" to move your own ants.
