Extractions: History of Geometry In this cybertour you will be exploring activities relating to the history of geometry and other activities relating to geometry. objectives for this cybertour on Geometry: To realize that Geometry is important To see how mathematicians developed ideas for Geometry To be able to recognize different shapes To be able to use a geometric theorem To see that we use Geometry in real life situations Answer the joke on the web page, then click on activities, there you will find a few additional links. Then click on polygons to start the lesson. A polygon is a closed plane figure made up of line segments. We see polygons everywhere. On streets, in your classroom and even at home. Draw three different polygons. In your own words, what is a polygon? Tell me the name of some polygons we use everyday? Which of these shapes are polygons? Which of these shapes are not polygons? Look at this page to give you a general idea about Pythagoras. Also be sure to click on Pythagoras to learn more about him. Read carefully so that you can answer the questions!

Includes links that explore symmetry in flags, quilting, inversions, Escher-type tessellations and even Donald Duck in Mathemagic Land. Some of the activities/links are more accessible and/or useful than others, but it looks like a wonderful resource for teaching symmetry. Site Name: The Geometry Web Page Address: http://homepage.mac.com/efithian/geometry.html Reviewed By: TinaM on 1/20/00 This site contains 16 activities that use varying manipulatives, including tangrams, geoboards, and space cubes. Each activity has different problems within them. There are also Test Previews included on the website. These previews consist of review questions of the different activities supplied on the page. There are also a couple of downloadable geometric games on the website, as well. Some of the activities on the web page deal with tessellations, symmetry, and polygons. I think this is a really good website. It offers different ideas for presenting various topics in geometry.

Extractions: MATH LINKS Have you heard of Pascal's Triangle. Very interesting... GEOMETRY Geometry is a favorite of many of my students. This is especially true when we begin the unit on tessalations. A tessalation is any repeating pattern of interlocking shapes. Tessalations are also called tilings. Tilings however, usually refers to patterns consisting of only polygons.

Extractions: TESSALATIONS IN INTERIOR DESIGN Introduction A tessalation is a tiling pattern made of polygons. The tiling pattern can be extended so that the tiles cover the plane completely with no gaps. A tessalation is the result of covering a plane surface with a repeated pattern of figures without any spaces between the figures. Ceramic tile, linoleum, and wood flooring are examples of interior designers favorite choices for homes. Many styles, patterns, and colors are available. A herringbone pattern, for example, is made up of parallelograms, a checkerboard pattern is made up of squares, and a honeycomb pattern is made up of hexagons. Task You are an interior designer. You have been hired to create a flooring design that is to be used in a custom home. You will create this design using tessalations. Process I Research tessalations using the following links: Porcelainia Tessalations Tessalations when tessalations are made Process II Design your custom flooring pattern by using a specific polygon or polygons. Create a pattern using your polygon(s) of choice.

Extractions: [Each day participants will be asked to send messages to the whole group here describing something or giving feedback about an activity, and one person will summarize it and post it on the geometry.institutes newsgroup.] One of the first day activities for our Geometry and the Internet Workshop was to note some of our favorite resources as teachers. Throughout the week we will be sharing our ideas. Watch for them. The comments on our favorite resources follow: As a young and promising geometry teacher my resources range from magazines to veteran teachers. I mostly utilize math surveys at the beginning of the year with 10 classes in the math department to get ideas for projects, group activities, field trips, and math week activities. I currently have been using the Key Curriculum Press Textbook with my Geometry Advance students. It is a wonderful book. See everyone supper time. Cathy Bordersforum2 I am Pam Champion and am attending a workshop at Berry College with Annie, Steve, and David. I have been teaching Geometry at Houston County High School in Warner Robins, Georgia for 3 years. I have also taught a lot of PreAlgebra and a sprinkling of Algebra II, CP and honors level.
