The 2013 runnerup Rosenthal Prize project uses constructions as an entrée to such beauty as number sets, cardinality, and geometry. Participants complete the project with guidance as needed, discuss typical student challenges, and possible extensions. This can be either an introductory unit or a capstone project, depending on the need.
