Description of the Project:
Students in grade seven will participate in collaborative teams which will enable them to gain an appreciation for the innumerable applications of geometry in the world around them. They will have an understanding of the history of geometry and came to appreciate the many professionals who employ geometry in their daily work. In cooperative groups, students will research one or more geometry topics and concepts and present their ideas in a multimedia presentation . This unit is also being adapted for the fifth grade level by Diane Fahrner from St. Raymond's School in Menlo Park, California.

    This course is the third part of the Real-World Mathematics Project. It will serve as the Problem Solving Teaching Laboratory, concluding the project for the participants. The participants will be responsible for developing a mini-course on wetlands for approximately 20 middle school students. The participants will need to develop the topics, outcomes, materials, and instructional plan for the mini-course. The results will be recorded in book form as a teacher's guide. Some of the material should be posted on the Internet.
    The course is open only to those students who are participating in the Real World Mathematics Project and have successfully completed the previous two components of the project.

    The Geometer's Sketchpad Activities
    Exploring Characteristics of Triangles Students draw triangles and explore the classification of each using the measures of interior angles and lengths of sides. In the extension activities, the students further explore and generalize a formula for the sum of the interior angles of convex polygons.
    Constructions of Isosceles and Equilateral Triangles
    Students discuss the difference between drawing and constructing a triangle using The Geometer's Sketchpad. They will further develop constructions for both isosceles and equilateral triangles. In the extension activities, students will script the construction of a right triangle.
    The Pythagorean Theorem
    Students create both a visual and formal proof of the Pythagorean theorem, as well as view four additional geometric demonstrations of the theorem. These demonstrations are based on proofs by Bhaskara, Leonardo da Vinci, and Euclid. Students will value this activity more if they have already had some experience with the Pythagorean Theorem. Exploring Centers of a Triangle: Part 1 Using problem solving skills, formal geometry, and The Geometer’s Sketchpad, students will model and solve two real-world problems by constructing the incenter and circumcenter of triangles. Students will further explore relationships between the angle and side bisectors of arbitrary triangles. The author wishes to acknowledge Dr. Billie F. Risacher for providing the real-world scenarios.

    Sponsored by Project to Increase Mastery of Mathematics and Science and the Connecticut State Department of Education Print an Application What is Discrete Mathematics Discrete Mathematics is the branch of mathematics that deals with arrangements of distinct objects. One of the primary uses of discrete math is the development of an optimal strategy to solving a problem, such as- What is the best route? What is the least cost? What is the fastest method of sorting? Discrete math topics can be integrated into the regular elementary curriculum and provide activities that engage students in doing math, promote reasoning and representation, and demonstrate many real-world applications of mathematics. Institute Design The institute will include three full day programs, each addressing one of the following topics. Each day will consist of a general session to introduce the topic of the day followed by grade-appropriate implementation workshops. COURSE OFFERINGS Mathematical Modeling with Networks
    Networks are constructed by connecting a series of points with lines. Networks are very powerful tools for creating mathematical models in a wide variety of situations. They have been used to find the best way to route and schedule Post Office, Fed EX and UPS deliveries, and airlines. Networks are also used by the government and security companies to construct codes that are difficult to break. Participants in this session will begin to explore the diverse topic of vertex-edge graphs (also called networks) and be introduced to some of its applications.

    : A related series of family events, staff development institutes, classroom lessons and at-home activities that help teachers to engage parents in the goals and strategies of standards-based mathematics instruction.
    The project utilizes a proven instructional resource, the NSF supported classroom television series The Eddie Files, to bridge the gap between the classroom and the home. Eddie Files episodes are used to demonstrate standards-based teaching to parents, to communicate the value of mathematics competence, and as orientation points for home-based math projects.
    The project is spearheaded by a group of principals and lead teachers who are trained in administering the project and then, in turn, supervise and mentor teachers at their schools.
