Investigating Geometry Summary

Monday - Friday, July 16 - 20, 2007

Monday
Groups continued work on their projects. At the end of the session, teachers were shown a few sample projects from past years (both abstracts and supporting files) as examples.

Tuesday
Groups spent the first third of the session working out the details of their project. Suzanne then came to talk about the proper forms and organization needed to complete each project. The last third of the session was spent by fleshing out a project abstract and continuing on respective projects.

Wednesday
Working groups did not meet today.

Thursday
Teams finalized their projects by completing the cover sheet and by organizing their project documents. As the projects were being collected electronically, larger groups were organized by focus topic (measurement and transformations) to create a cohesive presentation to the SSTP group.

Friday
Each working group presented the results of their cumulative work to the entire SSTP group. Each working group did a wonderful job at both creating and presenting meaningful lessons and resources.
