TITLE
Building a Box to Revisit Geometry
DESCRIPTION

Participants will transform greeting cards into boxes useful for small item storage and, more importantly, for delivering a better understanding of the relationships among perimeter, area, and volume. A major goal is to give students a better understanding of geometry terms and the nuances of definitions involved with polygons with a special emphasis on familes of quadrilaterals. Ratio and proportion are discussed as they relate to sizing the boxes.
