ALEX Learning Activities
Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12)
Title: Polygon Angle Relationship Quiz
Description:

In this activity, students will complete an online quiz using Go Formative. Students will answer varying types of assessment questions in order to demonstrate mastery of angle relationships found in regular and irregular polygons.

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12)
Title: Polygons in Real Life
Description:

This activity is a digital entry ticket for students. Students will share real-life applications of polygons while completing this activity. The purpose of this activity is to develop student interest in the properties of polygons.

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Subject: Mathematics (9 - 12), Mathematics (9 - 12)
Title: Polygon Book Project
Description:

In this activity, students will investigate patterns and relationships related to the interior and exterior angles of polygons.  Students will also use Geogebra to construct regular and irregular polygons.

This activity results from the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Title: Strange Shapes | MIT's Science Out Loud
Description:

In school, you learn about shapes with sides and edges, but there are weird shapes out there (beyond our 3 dimensions) that defy our normal idea of geometry. QuanQuan and Jenny explain, knit, and 3D print their way through these strange shapes.

Title: The Origami Revolution | Math and Science Modernize an Ancient Tradition
Description:

Discover parallels between the natural world and origami—the Japanese art of paper folding—and witness how artists, mathematicians, and scientists are pioneering complex new designs, in this video from NOVA: The Origami Revolution. While origami is steeped in tradition, computer programs are being used today to develop new, more complex designs so that almost any three-dimensional object can be translated into a two-dimensional pattern that can be folded to model the object. This resource is part of the NOVA Collection.

Title: Geometry Module 2, Topic C: Similarity and Dilations
URL: https://www.engageny.org/resource/geometry-module-2-topic-c-overview
Description:

Students learn what it means for two figures to be similar in general, and then focus on triangles and what criteria predict that two triangles will be similar. Length relationships within and between figures are studied closely and foreshadows work in Module 2, Topic D. The topic closes with a look at how similarity has been used in real-world application.
