Shaping a STEM Future with a Tessellation and a 3-D Printer
The proposal, "Shaping a STEM Future with a Tessellation and a 3-D Printer" requires students to manipulate polygons with slide, flips, and rotations in order to create a tile, or tessellation, that will tile a plane. After mast
Making Math Magical
Hands on activities and explorations, coupled with lessons led with math literature brings the classroom and its targeted learning goals to life! At Metcalf School we utilize data to drive our instruction targeted to meet individual student needs. We have worke
Building Geometric Understandings through Building Structures
Students--working in small groups, in pairs, and individually--will initiate and participate in Makerspace investigations of model structures aligning with NCTM Pre-K-2 Expectations-Geometry as well as the NYS Learning Standards-Geom
Shaping the World We Live In
Understanding shapes require students to look at its structure and determine if its form satisfies its function. With the use of accessible technology such as digital CAD programs and 3D printing, students at the middle school level can simulate and prototype real-
Geometry through the Seasons
This project, Geometry through the Seasons, proposes to magnify student curiosity and thirst for learning by establishing a garden in which children experience and learn geometry. Concepts and content will be introduced in the classroom, followed by th
"BRIDGING" the Gap in GEOMETRY!
Principles and Standards for School Mathematics calls for Geometry to be learned using concrete models and drawings. In this hands-on project, students will first design a blueprint, then build an authentic, replica, scale model version of a "Warren/Pratt" T
