Jump-In Geometry

Thursdays at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
February 11 , 18, and 25
March 4

Appropriate for ages 12 and up

Join Professor Paul Zeitz in this four-part series that focuses on hands-on concepts in geometry.  Armed with pencils, rulers, and scissors, we will embark on a physical and dynamic exploration of size, shape, dimension, and more.  Bring geometry from the realm of the abstract into the real world in this tangible learning adventure.

Jump-In Geometry: "Beyond the Compass"
Thursday, February 11
Appropriate for ages 10 and up

Learn how to build, or at least contemplate, several different geometric "machines" that expand or contract space, turn lines into circles, and more.  Some machines can be built with everyday materials; others require a robust imagination.  Click here to register for this individual session.

Jump-In Geometry: "Dissections"
Thursday, February 18
Appropriate for ages 12 and up

Can you turn a square into a triangle with finitely many straight-line cuts?  Can you prove the Pythagorean theorem with scissors?  Explore the alchemy of dissections, and learn a little bit about what it means to "do math."  Click here to register for this individual session.

Jump-In Geometry: "Rotations and Reflections"
Thursday, February 25
Appropriate for ages 12 and up

Why do mirrors reverse left-right, but not up-down?  Which is more symmetrical, a cube or a tetrahedron?  Click here to register for this individual session.

Jump-In Geometry: "Inversion"
Thursday, March 4
Appropriate for ages 12 and up

What does it mean to "reflect about a circle"?  This innocent question has a very definite answer that takes us into a wonderland of new insights about the unity of circles and lines.  Click here to register for this individual session.
