Kyle Penrod's curator insight,

This site has a lot of different ways to try and get students engaged in math.  Students have options to build things, design amusement park rides, and play games, all the while using/learning important rules of math!

## Symmetries

Beauty is extremely hard to define. Yet, physicists and artists seem to agree on an important feature of beauty, created by mathematicians: Symmetries. This article aims at introducing the beauty and the concepts on symmetries, from the basic geometrical symmetries to the more abstract fundamental automorphisms.

Wow! It really changed the way I think about geometry. It expanded my thinking and I believe it is a good source for teachers that it offers an opportunity to see the world using the lens of geometry. Simply, geometry is everywhere and almost in everything!

This would not only be educational, but fun. Maybe through this, others might be inspired to incorporate more math into everyday things for children.

"Nothing can be built without Geometry"

Kyle Penrod's curator insight,

Here is another good video showing the applications of geometry.  I think many students find the idea of architecture exciting and they like the idea of designing buildings and structures.  This video discusses the role and importance of geometry in architecture.

## PPP: Child Growth & Development || Shapes || Help children understand shapes

Young children have an inborn ability to understand shapes. Even babies can recognize the difference between a circle and a square. They can see shapes and feel them. But they need help learning the name of each shape.
