Create “units” which connect textbook geometry to mathematical and nonmathematical fields so that we can deepen understanding of shapes, similarity, scale, and proof, as well as aid in the development of “visual strength.” Specific examples include selections from Euclid and Lobachevsky, as well as examples from chemistry, art, and literature.
