Topological Equivalence of Objects. Teacher's Guide for Use with Stretching and Bending. Working Paper No. 18a.
Shah, Sair Ali
The notions of topological equivalence for one-, two-, and three-dimensional figures, as well as for graphs and networks, are developed for classroom use with children between the ages of three and ten. Properties of open and closed curves are also examined. This manual, addressed to the teacher, describes several activities related to each concept to be introduced. In order to implement this material, the teacher would need plastic clay, colored beads, and wire or pipe cleaners for each student. (SD)
