In geometry we have been talking A LOT about quadrilaterals. We just wrapped up the chapter and I wanted to mix things up a bit. So today students started a construction design project. I gave them a challenge worksheet, which walked them through the steps of constructing an inscribed pentagon and they ended up really struggling with it.
The directions were awful.
Math Open Reference saved the day. We talked about how to inscribe different shapes and they went on their way creating some really cool designs by looking at diagonals and different intersections within polygons.
Pictures coming soon!
