Adult Numeracy Center and SABES webinar — Let’s Go Fly a Kite: Using Family Math to Explore Angles
Learn a family-friendly geometry activity that can benefit adult ed students as well as their kids! New webinar just added.
June 5, 2020 – 1:00pm to 2:15pm
Join us for a 1-hour webinar, where we will use an origami kite-making activity to connect concrete paper-folding activities with more formal angle measurement concepts. Originally designed for families, the activity also provides a foundation for additional learning for adults’ needs in their dual role as caregivers of children and learners of mathematics.
Upon completion of this professional development activity, you will be able to:
- Create a 3-D shape that your adult students will also be able to create with their children
- Connect abstract geometry topics to a real-life concrete example
