The Beauty of Geometry

Barbara Morris 

March 2004, Volume 9, Issue 7, Page 358

Abstract:
A geometry project that used the beauty of stained-glass-window designs to teach middle school students about geometric figures and concepts. Three honors prealgebra teachers and a middle school mathematics gifted intervention specialist created a geometry project that covered the curriculum and also assessed students' knowledge. By reading this article, teachers will learn about the project and how to implement it in a mathematics classroom.
