21 Sep - Tues **Project 3:**Axiom Systems and Wile E. Coyote16 Sep - Thur - If you didn't finish taking notes on the video, finish that.
- Bring
*Roads to Geometry*to class- Continue working on Project 3
14 Sep - Tues - Read Project 2 Solutions on ASULearn.

9 Sep - Thur - Meet in 205.
**Project 2:**Measurement and Constructions Prepare to turn in work that follows the guidelines. See ASULearn for hints. You may work alone or in a group (maximum 3 people) and turn in one project writeup per group.

Problem 1:**Wallace and West**8*Roads to Geometry*1.1

Problems 2 and 3:**Sibley**3 and 10*The Geometric Viewpoint*1.1

Problem 4:**Sketchpad**Examine Wallace and West*Roads to Geometry*p. 210 Construction 4.9.4 and Euclid's Elements Book 1 to look at Proposition 9.

1) Use Sketchpad to complete the construction. You may only use straight edge and compass features and additional Sketchpad features which are construction propositions that come before proposition 9.

2) Save your document as yourname.gsp (no spaces!) and attach it onto the personal storage space in ASULearn.7 Sep - Tues - Read Wallace and West Roads to Geometry p. 1-5 and 8-9, and Sibley Geometric Viewpoint p. 2-5 and p. 9 and come to class prepared to discuss the readings.
- Begin working on Project 2.
2 Sep - Thur - Review Project 1 solutions via class notes and the solutions link on ASULearn. Write down any questions or comments.
**Project 1**Self-Reflection31 Aug - Tues **Project 1: Connections and an Overview of Course Topics**Sphere Presentations- Bring a 10-12 inch diameter child's ball - these are usually found in bins in stores and cost a couple of dollars. Be sure that this ball is smooth, can bounce, and that you won't mind writing on it during class.
26 Aug - Thur - Search google for Dr. Sarah, click on my page, and click on the MAT 3610 link and then the Syllabus link. Write down any questions you have - the university considers this a binding contract between us.
