Course Descriptions


    MA 127 - Geometrical Explorations

    This course explores geometry through a discovery-based, tactile, and visual approach. The course encourages discovery and reasoning through in-class investigations which may use technology, manipulatives, and geometrical tools. Students develop a deeper understanding of basic geometry, including measurement in two and three dimensions, isometries and similarities, and connections to arithmetic. Applications may include quilt patterns, polyhedra, kaleidoscopes, projections, and fractals.
