This book is the result of the collaborative effort of nine AYA National Board Certified Teachers in Mathematics. Experiencing Mathematics, is a compilation of teacher-tested activities that prompt high school students to explore, conjecture and reflect on their mathematical adventures--thus "experience mathematics." The relevant nature of the activities will motivate students to pursue their investigations with vigor and take the intellectual risk necessary to construct knowledge and improve problem solving competence. This edition provides student activities grouped into the following three sections: (1) Algebra; (2) Geometry; and (3) Algebra 2. Through activity design, students are lead through an inductive inquiry in which they conjecture, formulate and test ideas/concepts. This inductive student-centered approach to learning will not only excite students, but increase student effort. [For the Teacher Edition, see ED493154.]
