Here is a game that reinforces your learners to find out which 2 numbers to add to get the same result. 

In this article we shall describe the construction of the ellipse and the hyperbola using a similar strategy of paper-folding followed by a Geogebra exploration. The reader may consider the previous article as a pre-requisite to this one.
 

Swati Sircar invites you to explore the cubic identities a^3 + b^3 through models.

Swati Sircar invites you to explore the cubic identities a^3 - b^3 through models.

Pi - the irrational, nevertheless mathematical, constant and “celebrity number” (as Alex Bellows puts it) is an intriguing & insπring number that has enthralled mathematicians for centuries.
How can I show this to the uninitiated?
 

Swati Sircar invites you to explore the cubic identities (a+b)3 through models.

Swati Sircar invites you to explore the cubic identities (a-b)3 through models.

Remember, as a child, being amazed at how neatly adults could fold long pieces of cloth? Why not make a lesson out of this?
Swati Sircar, in this video, demonstrates how the powers of two can be learned from folding a sari. Now, try it in your classroom!

Building 3D models to enhance learning. What better way for students to understand concepts like vertices and edges than to construct their own 3D models? Constructing a dodecahedron as demonstrated by Shiv Gaur would personalise their learning in a meaningful way and nothing can beat that experience.
