Monday Morning
Things we're doing:

This morning we are getting organized in the Lab. So far my thoughts to get
started on the Middle School activities include

1. Going through pages and looking for areas that could
be enlarged. The places I have found so far include

a. adding historical links to the tessellation pages
(Islamic)
b. adding geographical links to the tessellation pages (Spain, Middle East)
c. LogoWriter
d. creating a coloring activity to go with

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/alejandre/magic.square/ben.lines3.html

e. adding to the factoring pages

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/alejandre/factor1.html

2. Instead of adding to the factoring pages...try to
think of a series of thoughts in algebra and create a large area that
presents those algebraic thoughts geometrically with activities that
would be fun. [If you find that confusing :) it is because I am not
at all clear on that idea!]

3. One activity that would be fun to start with would be the Coloring Activity.
If you could look at
http://forum.swarthmore.edu/alejandre/magic.square/ben.lines3.html
and think of how that could be colored to highlight the symmetry that
you see in the drawing...perhaps we could write questions (covering a
wide range of student abilities) to go along with the activity.

From the messages posted this morning to the Middle School group of Geometry
Institutes I see both Karen Smith's and Sandy Sherman's!

I am looking forward to your ideas.

Suzanne
