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.  

Learning Objectives: 

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

Presenters: Teresa Lara-Meloy & Ken Rafanen & Pam Meader
