LEARNING OBJECTS: SPACE GEOMETRY
is a Flash Learning Object?
Flash Learning Objects are learning activities or movies
created in a program called Flash. These Learning Objects
require a Flash Player for viewing. Some of the Flash Learning
Objects may include some aspects of interactivity, while
others may run more like a movie that students watch to
gain an understanding of a particular concept.
Learning Objects for Space Geometry
This Flash movie is essentially a slide show of art projects
completed using only polyhedrons. It serves as an illustration
of what students might wish to create. This slideshow
accompanies a teacher facilitated
lesson which encourages understanding through math.
More examples are artwork are available here.
Tutorial - this movie presents an overview of
many of the basic concepts found in the introduction of
space geometry. Users interact with the material while
reviewing key terms and shapes. Two files exist. The first
includes sound with a volume control. This is the preferred
presentation but its size makes it inappropriate for dial-up
connections. The second uses little sound and will work
fine in dial-up situations.
Geometry Quiz - a short test of the main
concepts taught in grades 6 & 7. Polyhedron recognition,
Euler's formula and nets are among the areas queried.
