Intuitive Geometry. Topical Module for Use in a Mathematics Laboratory Setting.
Andersen, Lyle
This module utilizes hole punching with a pencil, paper folding, rubber band stretching, and unique board models to "picture" key geometric concepts in an intuitive manner. The module is virtually self-contained, except for common classroom items which are scissors and a protractor. The introductory lesson allows for a variety of approaches for the student to take as he/she experiments and looks for solutions to divergent questions. The five experiments involve inexpensive models which help the student build up a concept of key geometric ideas in a very concrete way. The module contains five enrichment cards, which involve students in problem situations that require the use of at least some of the geometric concepts stressed in the module. (Author/MK)
