Prisms Fun with by D. Fisher
This activity can be done with powerpoint only, but it is much better if the students practice with paper prisms or models made of drinking straws, etc. Besides learning the names of various prisms students can practice “algebraic reasoning.” They can generate sequences and make predictions about patterns. Enjoy this presentation. Send feedback and suggestions to Don Fisher: by D. Fisher
