The Language of Math
We are starting a Geometry unit in math. We will be doing many activities with 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes. Last week, we learned a new shape game. Two people play the game. Both players choose the same 6 shapes from a pile of shapes. Then they put up a file folder "wall" between them. One player creates a design using those 6 shapes and gives directions to the other player to build the same design. The listener may ask questions at any time.The catch is that they can't see what the other is building. It turns out that it is rather challenging to use accurate and descriptive math language in order to get your partner to recreate your design. Below are some photos of us playing this game.
