Teaching Temari: Geometrically Embroidered Spheres in the Classroom
(Proceedings pages 563–566)
This paper discusses the various potential pedagogical benefits of
using temari balls, or geometrically embroidered spheres in a
mathematics class, either to craft or as objects of investigation.
The corresponding workshop is designed to teach participants the
basic techniques for crafting temari. During the construction
process, the group will discuss ways to utilize temari balls to
enhance student understanding of a variety of mathematical concepts.
