Bridges 2010 Workshop Paper
Creative Learning with Giant Triangles
(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.
