Recording of Jump-In Geometry: "Dissections" with Paul Zeitz

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Thursday, February 18, 2021.

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.

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."
