The Square's Square Roots By-The-Dots 5TH-10TH Grades
DO THE ART, GET PYTHAGORAS.
A Pythagorean World erupts from a simple square. The square is a shape that contains built-in square roots that are perfect for introducing the Pythagorean Theorem, and utilizes Square Roots as Pythagorean Triplets!: "two birds with one stone"? Make landscapes or sidewalk art and murals, all with mathematical lessons embedded inside the designs. Perfect for the Summer. Guaranteed to settle any questions students might have about the Pythagorean Theorem and Square Roots and how they work.
Native American Geometry: The cure for the Common Core.
Focusing on the Perfect Polygons, first the student enjoys a field day with a new skill (compass and straightedge work) and ends up with designs full of built-in Math lessons, 4th Grade -12th Grade. Math breaks free of its usual constraints, and with the lessons, students discover corollaries in the world around them, in nature and world cultures, plus they acquire a skill for life, for use in art and crafts, math, drafting, architecture, or just having fun designing personal logos. It does not matter. Every piece of work is teaming with math lessons that introduce the Higher Maths.
When you do the art, Math erupts!
