Wednesday Feb 23, 2000
Objective: Students will create a soccer ball out of regular pentagons and hexagon. They will learn the mathematics involved.
Warm up: No warm up
a)drafting a regular pentagon: side = 5cm
b)drafting a regular hexagon : side = 5cm
(hint:Inner angle sum 720 degrees)
a)Discover the pattern
b)Cut and paste
CHANGE OF PLANS: TODAY WE FINISHED PREVIOUS PROJECTS - DODECAHEDRON AND RECURSIVE PYRAMID:
Tuesday Feb 22, 2000
Objective: Students will be able to draft and create a dodecahedron, and will be able to explain the math and the patterns behind it.
a)Create a regular pentagon (8 cm per side)
b)Bonus: How do you get 540 degrees as the inner angle sum?
c)How do you get 108 degrees?
Check Friday's work
Classwork: Create the 2 halves needed for the dodecahedron (color paper)
Notebook check #2
Create another dodecahedron, same size (4-in radius)
extra credit: create it with each pentagon measuring 8cm per side (I dare you)
