Abstract

Battleship is a game of guessing, strategy, and logical thought that has been around since the 1930s. In the game, players position ships of various sizes on a grid that their opponent cannot see. Players take turns guessing the location of the ships and the game continues until all of one player's ships are sunk. This game can be adapted to incorporate mathematics by using Desmos, a free online graphing calculator that runs in the window of any modern web browser.
