Overland Trail Middle School 7 Silver Math Teacher
Quilts have been a special art in America for many generations.  Little pieces of scrap material have found their way into the hearts and lives of families who cherish the stories each block tells.  These elegant works of art are more than just scraps of fabric, they are mathematics and geometry portrayed to their fullest. 

Your project is to make a quilt block using paper.  The links below will give you examples of many different blocks.  You will be given directions in class for the project and they will be given at this website once the project has been assigned. 

For now, click on any of the links below and spend a few minutes looking at the different blocks paying close attention to design and the use of geometric shapes, especially squares and triangles.
