402- Cutting Apart or Putting Together: Geometrical Reasoning Practice with Shapes

Friday, April 15, 2011: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
105/106 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
James King

Students need interesting geometric examples to explore for practice with reasoning. Using scissors, the speaker will dissect well-known figures to produce shapes. Using tape, he will assemble shapes from geometrical building blocks. In each instance, he will do the hands-on work in a parallel with the reasoning that yields interesting angle or ratio properties.
