Schedule

◊  This is a tentative schedule, based on my best estimate of how long things take. Topics may move or vanish.
◊  Because of the cumulative nature of some of the work, it is important to attend everything.
◊  We will start and end on time every day.


Daily Schedule

GeoGebra basics

Afternoon:

Isometries in GeoGebra: learning the tools, compositions

Symmetry: introduction, recognizing and creating rosette symmetries, formal definition

Day 2

Congruence and similarity in the Common Core

Rethinking proof: geometric construction, triangle congruence

Afternoon:

Computing images: complex numbers, matrices 

Abstract algebra: finite groups, symmetry groups

Day 3

Morning:

More proof: symmetry definitions for special triangles and quadrilaterals, proving theorems
