Presenting with Chromebook while OFFLINE.

Enthusiastic Start
“Forgive us if your students love this stuff [common core curriculum]”
The problem:
Only in math problems can you buy 60 cantaloupes and no won asks what the hell is wrong with you(Peanut Cartoon)
Far Side Comic
Gates of Heaven: “Just one question, if a train leaves New York at x mph…”
Frozen:
References song “Let it Go” from Frozen
uses “fractals” in verse
A short digression:
JT volunteered as a math resource teacher
Took normal pattern blocks, and added regular pentagons
Tables go only one type of pattern block (triangle, square, pentagon, or hexagon)
Task = tile the table no empty space
Problem with pentagons, show/explain why
Fibonacci
1,1,2,3,5,... f(n)=f(n1)+f(n2)
Doesn’t matter why numbers you start with, series still converges to Phi
The essential question that leads into project: Why? Students do the research and present
satisfies all 8 SMPs
7 bridges of Konesburg
actually exists at a place in Brazil (use Google Maps)
Knights of Knowledge
free web app from Chrome WEb Store
Use Geogebra to find pattern in Art (import picture then look for flow (parametric equations)
Logo
Have students create fractal art using free programming software: Scratch from MIT
Programming  the next step
Wolfram Programming Language = next big thing, look for it next cue
Next Gen Manipulatives = 3D printing, make your own
Use 3D visualizing software with polyhedra showing Euler’s relationship with faces edges and vertices
Play Brussel Sprouts
Use Celtic Art to discuss Knot Theory
Knot Plot = software for knots
Towers of Hanoi
What happens with you use more than 3 posts?
What is the pattern for more posts and number of additional moves necessary?
Back to Pentagons/Polygons
Introduce Penrose tiling,
Start with a center pentagon, what is the symmetry?
Start with 2 center pentagons, then what is the symmetry?
