Onsite participants were asked to bring an interesting activity to lead the rest of the group through during the Institute. The purpose: to give us an excuse to play, to add to our repertoires, and to fuel our thoughts about how the Web can be used to share what we do.
For each activity presented, a Forum staff member wrote up a description of what transpired during the lesson. These summaries were posted to the geometry.institutes discussion group; we have an archive of Shared Lessons & Activities postings. If you would like to comment on any of these activities, you may either post to geometry.institutes or send email to the presenter of the lesson.
For some of the lessons listed below, interactive online versions of the activity were produced - Mike Morton wrote a Java Applet so users can play our Traffic Jam activity on the Web!
