††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† perceptual, social and technological. This is a comprehensive approach

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† to learning and forms the basis for the interdisciplinary, sequential

The Mathematics of Origami

 

This guide offers students a hands-on, discovery-based approach to

learning geometry through origami. As they construct three-dimensional origami models,

students will increase their spatial awareness, look at specific geometric concepts such

as the properties of polyhedral, and create their own understanding of the imbedded

mathematical concepts. Students will also be introduced to the language of mathematics

as they learn to describe their discoveries using appropriate geometric terminology and

notation. Includes 30 six-inch squares of paper in assorted colors.

This guide includes activities which use interesting contexts to

approach proportional reasoning. Proportional reasoning is a unifying idea that

encompasses many mathematical subjects- ratios, proportions, percents, scale,

similarity, linear functions, etc. This publication pursues these subjects not in

isolation but through their connectedness.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Writing to Learn Mathematics demonstrates the use of journals, learning

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† logs, letters, etc. to improve the reasoning abilities of students of all grade

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† levels. It can help students develop concepts and thinking skills as well

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† as free them to recognize what they know and what they want to explore

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† further about mathematics.
