Maker Space Build Along: Stick-eometry

Maker Space Build Along: Stick-eometry


Using pencils or other sticks, plus tape and rubber bands or elastic, students make their own toys that can transform from triangles to pentagons, and pentagrams... or from hexagrams to cubes, and square bottom pyramids! This is a mostly hands-on workshop experience, in which students can work at their own pace. Jay demonstrates several ways to construct these fascinating geometric manipulative toys and discusses their relevance to practical geometry. Some students will have successfully completed a working model by the end of the class. Please allow time and space during and after class, for them to share their skills and knowledge with each other.
