Overview

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.

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Adult education teachers at all levels of math ability and comfort
Description

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.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this professional development activity/course, you will be able to:

  • 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
