Lead Speaker:

Explore how students learn all about shapes through creating, playing, and analyzing shape games. These games (Zani Lingo, Grupo, and more) are part of research-based units developed under an NSF grant. Students identify, describe, sort, and classify shapes. After each game, questions on the important math behind the games provoke rich discussions.
