LEARNING ACTIVITIES: SPACE GEOMETRY
is an Online Learning Activity?
Online Learning Activities are activities that are completed
while on the computer. These activities include games, interactive
tools, web quests, research and discovery learning activities.
For proper viewing, some of these activities may require
plug-ins (Flash, Quicktime, etc). Students may require notebooks
and pencils to record information as they "discover
Learning Activities for Space Geometry
- this site offers a clear description of many types of
excellent online activity allows students to explore the
properties of polyhedrons. The activity
has several sections which allow the students to progress
in their understandings.
- this activity is part online/part paper
based. It is a more extensive version of
the link above. It offers a nice run through the properties
that make up polyhedrons. Use both links. The first takes
you to the online portion, the second to a print out that
accompanies it. NB. The paper component is 5 pages long
and includes a net construction activity.
Reasoning - the
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has created
a series of activities that walk the student through a
deeper investigation of the properties of 3d objects.
All aspects can be performed online but some materials
can be downloaded in both teacher and student versions.
Index - this site offers visual examples
and characteristics of dozens of polyhedra. It's scope
is well beyond that of the 6-9 math program yet it can
function as a valuable resource.
