Geometry ideas surround us everywhere we look. Unfortunately, it has been a topic reserved for the back of too many adult education workbooks. In this one-hour webinar, we will bring geometry front and center with ideas for adults and children to explore together.
- Adult education teachers at all levels of math ability and comfort
This professional development activity/course is designed for:
In this webinar, we will use an origami kite making activity originally designed for families but which also provides a foundation for additional learning for adults. Activities for adults will connect the concrete paper-folding activities with more formal angle measurement concepts. This fulfills adult learners' needs in their dual role as caregivers of children and learners of mathematics.
Create a 3-D shape that your adult students will also be able to create with their children
Connect abstract geometry topics to a real-life concrete example
Upon completion of this professional development activity/course, you will be able to:
