CSI: Geometry is coming together!!
We start the adventure in South Africa home to the Vuvuzela and learn some of the Foundations of Geometry!
Students go to France to practice Deductive Reasoning Skills
then travel to the Caribbean for Triangle Practice
after a nice tan they go to Canada for some Similarity and Proportion problems
after a losing the nice tan they travel to India, one of the many home of Trigonometry
from there it is off to England to investigate their fascination with Circles
and most recently students will refine Area skills in the Second City, Chicago
Each of the puzzles have the same structure and can make some engaging learning that gets away from a drill and kill worksheet! Check out the previews on TPT you can see everything! Except the answer key (I think 2/3 of my blog traffic is students looking for answers to the projects :-)
