This set includes Transformations, Symmetry, and Tessellations. This is one of my favorite activities. In Investigation Set 10 there are three investigations that are not labeled Guided or Open. These investigations give step-by-step instructions for creating Escher-style tessellations.
Patty Paper Geometry® was designed as a resource to supplement high school geometry courses or as a text in pre-geometry, pre-algebra, and middle grades mathematics programs. An investigation set may take two to three days, and the exercise sets may take an additional two to three days. Duration will vary depending on age, abilities, and how well students work cooperatively.
This 81 page black-line set contains both guided and open investigations. The guided investigations provide step-by-step instructions with illustrations. You may want to use the guided investigations for some topics and the open investigations for other topics. At the end of each investigation set there are exercise sets that reinforce concepts in the investigations and review previously learned concepts.
1. Every chapter has the Introduction about folding patty paper and basic geometric constructions.
2. Some answers will vary, based on student created work.
3. This book is still used as a college textbook and was published in 1994 before digital formats. I apologize for the black chapter headings and a few blank pages.
Discovering Geometry® author Michael Serra wrote Patty Paper® Geometry for his geometry students. He also created What’s Wrong with This Picture? in addition to Mathercise™ Books A, B, C, D, and E ; Smart Moves; and Pirate Math.
