Northwest Mathematics Interaction

NWMI Summer Geometry Institute
August 4 - 8, 2008

SGI Content

This classic NWMI Geometry week is offered for the thirteenth year. Experience mathematically meaningful geometry activities and discuss the math in the activity.

The NWMI program is based on real classrooms; instructors are the experienced corps of NWMI high school teachers (with help from mathematicians at UW and elsewhere). You will enjoy a week of high-energy immersion in geometry and sharing with other teachers.

Leave with a thick notebook, models you have made, and the confidence to use these activities in your classroom.

  • Polyhedra in many guises
  • Origami
  • Mirrors and Symmetry
  • Spheres
  • Geometer's Sketchpad Hands-on Instruction

  • Investigations of many kinds
  • And much more
  • PLUS a rich and relaxed optional program of After-Dinner Math.
