This video of some amazing stop-motion animation using post-its dubbed ‘Deadline.’

Guiding Questions

How long did this take?

What’s the time-length of each frame?

How many post-its were used? How many of each color?

Something about coordinate transformation?

Can we do this?

Suggested Activities

Have students use coordinate geometry and transformations to make their own stop-motion post-it video. Or at least storyboard it. I imagine by the time something like this is planned out and storyboarded, there would be a TON of coordinate geometry and transformations involved. Even a 30-second stop-motion post-it video could probably involved dozens and dozens of coordinate transformations.

You could do this over the course of a coordinate geometry unit on one of your classroom walls with a flip camera and some video editing software. Would you assign groups or do it as a whole class?
