From "My Ball" to "Sphere" or Taking the Time to Think About and Explore with Children Some Thing Over a Long Time and in Unexpected Ways.
Rasmussen, Lore
Presented are ways to teach pupils the concept of "sphere" with a methodology far removed from memorization of a formal definition of the concept. The material illustrates an approach to teaching that focuses on open exploration of ideas with children. Many experiments and starting points for exploration are suggested. This document has an appendix of examples of children's research and discoveries related to balls and spheres. (MP)
