Understanding Geometric Figures Through Drawing and Paper Folding

3/27/2013 7:09:00 AM
Watch a webcast of teachers learning how to teach the properties of two-dimensional figures. The introduction explains the general overview of the webcast, and the succeeding segments go into deep detail of why paper folding helps students understand geometric figures, and how to use paper as a visual and kinesthetic tool. One segment goes through the van Hiele Taxonomy of Geometric Thinking as a way to follow a student’s progress through the steps of understanding. After the lecture segments, watch students in classrooms working with paper and compasses as they explain what they are learning.
