96- Unpacking Geometry Problems from Boxes You Make

Thursday, October 25, 2012: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Exhibit Hall A Room 2 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Nicholas Restivo

You will transform used greeting cards into useful boxes—useful for small-item storage—but more important, you will discover real-life and challenging geometry concepts, make conjectures, and answer probing questions about parallelograms, rectangles, squares, and other quadrilaterals. We will also cover ratio, proportion, area, and volume.
