A Journey through Geometry: Designing a City Park

Anita Tepper 

February 1999, Volume 5, Issue 6, Page 348

Abstract:
A study unit based on a constructivist approach that offers students real-life situations in which to study the mathematical concepts of geometry. When problem-based learning activities, such as the park-design problem, are implemented in the classroom, students connect mathematical and scientific concepts and apply them to real-world experiences.
