Product Description

Edited by:
Marilyn E. Strutchens and Judith Reed Quander

No matter what the mathematics class, infusing reasoning and sense making into the daily mathematical experience of all high school students is crucial. "All high school students" includes low-performing students; gifted students; students of different racial, sociolinguistic, and socioeconomic status; students with disabilites; and students who are mathematically talented. The writers of this volume hope to further the dialogue about how to create for all students empowering mathematical experiences that incorporate reasoning and sense making.

Fibonacci Stays Here Poster

Fibonacci stays here
THE GOLDEN RATIO is also referred to as the golden section, the golden mean, the golden proportion, the extreme and mean ratio, and the divine proportion. It has been used to ensure beauty and balance in art, architecture, music and design for centuries.
Here, the ubiquitous Fibonacci sequence shows up where it is least expected: in the logo of a Chicago hotel. Your students can discover how to construct and measure a golden rectangle, determine where the golden ratio appears in the pentagon formed by a 5-pointed starfish, and apply graphs of polar equations.

A STAR POLYGON can be thought of as the set of points formed by connecting the vertices of a regular polygon in a special manner. This poster explores star polygons and discovers some of their properties, arriving at some interesting generalizations. Problems include proving the radian measure of the sum of the interior angles of a given star polygon; making a table that organizes information about the radian measure of interior star polygon angles; and whether or not it is possible to create a human hexagram, heptagram, or octagram.
