Creative Learning with Giant Triangles
Simon Morgan, Jacqueline Sack and Eva Knoll
(Proceedings pages 523–530)


Participants will review, explore and develop geometric concepts and vocabulary, through guided discovery, by building polyhedra with giant, brightly-colored, connectable equilateral triangles. Activities will be geared for teachers of all levels. Learning issues and instructional strategies will be related to teacher-student 'hidden contracts' and the Van Hiele Model of Geometric Thought.
