Summary: What Do Hamburgers Have to Do with Geometry?

Nothing, but the translucent squares of paper used by restaurants to separate hamburger patties have a lot to do with it. Discovering Geometry author Michael Serra brings discovery through paper-folding activities to the classroom with his exciting book Patty Paper Geometry.

You may already use paper folding in your classroom. Maybe you tried waxed paper and found it hard to write on, or used other pap
er that you couldn't see through. Now there's patty paper, the perfect paper for geometric investigations. Manufactured in perfect squares, patty paper is easy to write on, and you can see creases and traces just as easily. It's a great way to explore geometry from a hands-on, tactile approach. And, best of all, it's probably the world's cheapest manipulative: A thousand sheets of patty paper cost only about six bucks.

Patty Paper Geometry includes dozens of activities that foster cooperative learning, increase students' geometric vocabulary, and motivate kids to read, write, and talk about geometry. Constructions are performed more accurately and geometric discoveries are made faster with patty papers. At the end of their investigations, students have discovered most of the properties of geometric figures studied in high school geometry courses.

Patty Paper Geometry is designed as two books. The first, a blackline-master book, contains 12 chapters of guided and open investigations. Open investigations encourage students to explore their own methods of discovery, and guided investigations provide more direction to students, or can be used as a teacher's guide. Each chapter includes many spiraled exercise sets, providing constant review. A separate student workbook is also available, containing all of the open investigations as well as some exercise sets.

Use Patty Paper Geometry as a supplement to your geometry program or even as a major course of study.

When ordering your copies of Patty Paper Geometry, be sure to stock up on plenty of patty papers. Each box contains 1,000 sheets of heavyweight paper perfect for your in-class investigations.
