WOW! Something Really Different in the Vendor Hall -- New Approach to Math -- Book Give-Away
Something new is afoot in the ICHE vendor hall this year. Why didn't they have this when my kids were young? Wholemovement is a hands-on way to study math -- most specifically geometry.
Here's some information from their web site:
Folding circles is a process ...
The purpose of this site is to promote the importance of folding circles. The circle is the most experiential, comprehensive, hands-on, educational tool we have, and yet most people do not know this. Every child in school should be folding as often as they draw pictures of circles, and discuss the information that is generated in the folding. You cannot anticipate what the circle will generate from a drawing. Folding circles is accessible to any person that can fold a circle in half, regardless of age or grade level. Paper circles are inexpensive and readily available worldwide in the form of paper plates.
Wholemovement, as a process, is about pattern and pattern formation. In folding circles, by observing what is generated, thinking about and reflecting on those observations, using that information to explore further, we can discover and better understand the reality of the circle and the nature of what it represents.
Wholemovement has donated a book for one of our book give-away. The first person to ask for the Wholemovement book at the Information/Registration kiosk, wins the book.
