You Can Cut It: Hands-on Geometry

Learners explore two and three-dimensional objects with a hands-on approach and an element of chance. Groups choose the name of a solid figure from a "hat" and work with that shape. They sketch it, determine the number and shapes of faces, and present their shape to the rest of the class, jigsaw style. They cut foam shapes to explore the properties of the different faces that result.
