Fun with Scissors and tape Can you think of a way to take a normal piece of paper and turn it into something with only one side and one edge?  What happens if you take such and object and cut in half, or in half again?  Under normal conditions, cutting something in half gives...two pieces...but all bets are off as we investigate the topology of certain simple surfaces in space using hands-on constructions and manipulations.

Rotational Symmetry and Computer Animation   Rotational symmetry is found abundantly in nature (starfish, flowers, fruit, jellyfish, etc.)   With the mathematics of rotational symmetry, we will construct our own symmetrical drawings using Geometer’s Sketchpad software.   And, we will animate our objects with Sketchpad to create mini-videos of our objects in motion.  Feel free to bring a Smartphone to record your on-screen video.

I Missed You Nearly Car stunts must be very carefully planned or the stunt men and women performing them could lose their lives. In this session, students will use their mathematics to design one or more stunts and, for at least one of the stunts, students will test their design using battery-operated toys. Calculator Based Rangers (CBRs) and graphing calculators will be used to gather information about a variety of motions including the motions of battery operated toys.
