In this beginning Sketchpad webinar, we’ll explore alternate methods for constructing dynamic rhombi using various geometric properties. Using basic construction techniques, you’ll explore activities that allow students to connect the transformational geometry emphasized in the Common Core with geometric properties of special quadrilaterals. You’ll receive classroom-ready activities to use with middle school and early high school students.
If you are looking for great ways to use geometry software to visually explain Common Core concepts, this is the place to go! – Beth Waite, “Get to the Core: Constructions and Transformations with Sketchpad” webinar attendee
I was a public high school math teacher in the Bay Area for 13 years, most of them at Arroyo High School, a comprehensive high school in San Lorenzo, but also a year at Leadership High School, a charter school in San Francisco. During that time I focused on supporting all students to take and pass Algebra 1, and also taught computer programming and a Sketchpad-based course on geometry in art. Since 2004, I've been a development editor and now product manager at Key Curriculum, where I have worked on textbooks, software, technology curriculum, and professional development courses.
