Category Description for PROGRAMS - OTHER:

While offering some instruction, these programs include less teaching material or do not cover the full range of grade-level skills that the comprehensive programs offer.




Category Description for Patty Paper 1,000 Sheets:

Patty Paper Sheets are also available separately and are a worthwhile tool for any geometry course. Sets include 1000 semi-transparent sheets that hold creases and can be written on with a pencil. Great for many geometry exercises and paper-folding activities. Sets come with sheets measuring 6" x 6" inches or 5.5" x5.5".




Category Description for Patty Paper Geometry:

Did you know that one of the ideal manipulatives for geometric investigations is patty paper? It is semi-transparent, holds a crease, and can be writen on with pencil (plus you can use them to separate hamburgers). The author's chance encounter with patty papers in a paper-folding activity led to his use of them in the classroom, where he discovered they were the perfect solution for geometric constructions and explorations. He relates, "When patty paper activities started appearing in my workshops for teachers, I devoted a brief five minutes to them. Within months the number of patty paper activities grew until five minutes became ten, then fifteen, then thirty minutes. I now do three-hour patty paper geometry workshops! Caution: Patty paper geometry is addictive." This well-written book uses a discovery approach along with patty papers to investigate all of the basic geometric principles. These investigations are divided topically into sets such as "Special Points of Intersection" and "Properties of Circles". Within each set are both Guided Investigations and Open Investigations. Guided Investigations have step-by-step instructions with illustrations. Open Investigations encourage independent discovery and include lined spaces for students to record their findings. At the end of each set of investigations there are exercise sets to reinforce new concepts and review previously-learned concepts. Answers to all course exercises and questions are also included. Although student pages in the text are reproducible, a nicely formatted consumable student workbook is also available. It contains all of the open investigations and most of the exercise sets. We are also happy to be able to offer patty papers to use with this course (A big thanks to Hilary and Michael here for all the trouble they went through to locate and finalize arrangements to make this possible).

This course would be equally suitable for use as a supplement to a formal geometry course or as a pre-geometry text. If you are using Discovering Geometry as your basal text there will be some overlap, since that book also uses patty paper investigations throughout the course.

This paper is great for investigating congruent geometric figures and learning transformations. Tracing is easy and the paper is easy to see through even on a document camera.

I don't know how transparent/translucent other patty papers are These are somewhat mottled and opaque The activities are easier if the lines or figures are drawn with a somewhat dark marker first instead of just folding It is too difficult to line up the folds but it is relatively easy to see a thick dark line through the paper
