Moving between Dimensions
Stephenson, Paul
Mathematics Teaching, n231 p28-31 Nov 2012
The first word of this item is "imagine". This instruction has the potential to signal a journey through a world of geometry that might leave you spellbound. On the other hand, it could be the start of a roller-coaster ride through three dimensions that will tax both your imagination, and your powers of visualisation. It is likely that you will enlist the support of dynamic geometry software as you travel through the "prompts". From Year 8 to Year 12/13 this is mathematics that can engage, excite, challenge, and inspire learners. But, beware a journey that might become an all-consuming passion.
