A-CED Regular Tessellations of the plane
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This task examines the ways in which the plane can be covered by regular polygons in a very strict arrangement called a regular tessellation. These tessellations are studied here using algebra, which enters the picture via the formula for the measure of the interior angles of a regular polygon (which should therefore be introduced or reviewed before beginning the task). The goal of the task is to use algebra in order to understand which tessellations of the plane with regular polygons are possible.

Eratosthenes and the Circumference of the Earth
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

The accuracy and simplicity of this experiment are amazing. A wonderful project for students, which would necessarily involve team work with a different school and most likely a school in a different state or region of the country, would be to try to repeat Eratosthenes' experiment.

Rating
0.0 stars

This rich task is an excellent example of geometric concepts in a modeling situation and is accessible to all students. In this task, students will provide a sketch of a paper ice cream cone wrapper, use the sketch to develop a formula for the surface area of the wrapper, and estimate the maximum number of wrappers that could be cut from a rectangular piece of paper.

0.0 stars

This lesson is for a math classroom, but can be adapted to fit any grade, subject, or content.  In this lesson, students will use an iPad and its features: Keynote, Pages, Garageband, Numbers, Presentation, and iMovie.  Students will use 3 of those features/programs to create a video lesson consisting of several examples from a topic of their choice.  This project is in place of a term final, so their chosen topic should be from their current term.Image citation: The image is one I created.
