So did I just say Christmas in June? Yes, I just came upon this wonderful video on wrapping Christmas presents. So where’s the math? Everywhere! Just think of all the questions that can be generated from this simple lesson in wrapping different shaped presents. And don’t forget to include, “Why does this work?” as one of the questions of choice.
Enjoy some Christmas in June… and since we are talking Geometry, here is a free gift for you in June – my Focus on Geometry set of pictures…. enjoy finding and discussing the mathematics. Let me know how you use them.
