Description: Fundamentals of knot theory for a wide range of levels - a variety of activities for exploring knots made from pieces of rope. Students can make and verify observations about knots, classify them, combine them, and find ways to determine if two knots are alike. The activities outlined here can be combined to form a single lesson about mathematical knots, or a larger investigative unit that extends over a longer period of time. Key concepts include knot theory, topology, operations, and proof.

Levels: Elementary, Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12)
Languages: English
Resource Types: Lesson Plans and Activities
Math Topics: Topology, Knot Theory
Math Ed Topics: Curriculum/Materials Development
