IN COLLECTION

This folder contains all resources for the Selling Geometry Project.

This folder contains resources for Curriki Geometry: Selling Geometry.

These resources may be useful for all of the Curriki Geometry projects. There are also additional resources useful for specific projects.

This lesson will discuss how to perform rotational transformations

This is a high- level talk by Oxford mathematician Marcus du Sautoy. He discusses the invisible numbers that marry all symmetrical objects. (18 minutes)

This lesson will discuss dilations and the concept of isometry and how it applies to transfomations.

This lesson will apply two transformations to polygons. It will also introduce the idea of glide reflection.

This page defines tesselations and the rules of regular tesselations.

This site allows students to create tessellations.

Known as the "father of geometry", this is an overview of Euclid's life and work. (1 minute, 30 seconds)

The eHow.com website offers and explanation of cloze notes, a method for helping students learn and retain key ideas and vocabulary.

This video discusses the history of geometry starting with Euclid, who is credited as one of the first mathematicians and father of geometry.

This project introduces students to a brief history of geometry, geometric terms, geometric shapes, and transformation and manipulation of shapes through reflections, tessellations, and dilations. Students will form marketing teams to “sell” geometry by explaining key terms, demonstrating key shapes, and describing the significance of geometry to an audience.
