Varnelle's Primary Math - Introduction to Symmetry (23 May 2002)
A unit by Varnelle Moore, designed to guide young children through an introduction to symmetry using a puzzle set of seven geometric shapes called tangrams. As children manipulate the tangrams, they will visually learn about slides (translation), turns (rotation), and flips (reflection). Lessons include interactive, manipulative-based projects, technology, paper/pencil practice, and literature connections.

Determination of Pi (15 April 2002)
Alexander Bogomolny has contributed a middle school lesson to the Teacher Exchange which presents an interesting alternative to the customary game plan for the determination of pi. Bogomolny's lesson presents pi in the framework of similarity, which makes the existence of pi self-evident. Approximation of pi does not require several objects. Pi can be approximated by taking measurements of a single circular object with different tools and different techniques.
