Geometry Connections: Activities Linking Mathematics to Community and Culture

Geometry builds bridges between our environment, our aesthetics and our mathematical sense. This workshop will involve participants in hands-on geometry experiences which connect community, culture and mathematics. Activities will be consistent with NCTM standards of communication, connections, problem solving and patterns. There will be an integration of mathematics with literature and social sciences. Participants will learn how to look at their own environments in order to find meaningful activities for their students.
