## Evolution of a Lesson

I've made numerous attempts at helping my geometry students understand the connections between scale factor, perimeter, and area of a polygon. My first attempt was an exploration. I wasn't pleased with the results. It was too challenging for my students who were not confident in calculating area and perimeter. Then I tried extending it by [...]

## Geometry Hexaflexagons

I spent way too much time on Vi Hart's YouTube channel last year. Her hexaflexagons intrigued me. I decided to see if I could harness the power of 18 equilateral triangles in a fun little package to help my students with some key concepts. First came my slope hexaflexagon.             [...]

Several years of work are coming together nicely. Unfortunately, I still have tests to grade. There are so many properties for students to know and remember in the quadrilaterals unit of Geometry. I started by creating flash cards on two sheets of paper back to back. Students had to write the property based on the [...]

## Triangle Musings

My regular geometry students have struggled with the concept of which side measures can form a triangle. I don't know if it's the wording of theorem - the sum of any two sides of a triangle must be greater than the third - there are a lot of math words there, or if it's that [...]

## Increasing Engagement

I remember being frustrated last year at about this time with my geometry students' performance on four questions on their circles test. The test was chronologically ordered in the way the material was presented so I was perplexed when they did poorly on the last section before review. It involved circles in the coordinate plane. Below are [...]
