Abstract

Description:

  1. To share ideas for using flags of Africa and technology to engage students with algebra & geometry concepts: shapes, aspect ratio, linear equations/inequalities, domain/range, angles/distance/slope, classifying triangles, area of polygons, parallelograms, & coordinate geometry.
  2. To highlight technology such as Google Slides, Google Sheets Pixel Art, GeoGebra, Desmos, and CNC Machines that help enrich the teaching of algebra and geometry.
  3. To provide ideas for promoting discussion of culture, history, & geography within the math classroom
