Description

My presentation at the SREB conference this summer was packed with Geometry teachers who were captivated by the ease of use for Illustrator in teacing Geometry. I have an Illustrator for Math Teachers post and Getting Started in Illustrator post on my website.

Our school is a career and technology center looking to offer a .25 math credit to our students, and our principal has asked me to create a geometry and design class.

I'd like to connect with a geomeetry teacher and get a .25 credit class completed.

I've also made so far are Flash animations that illlustrate geometry principles.The idea is that a student could do a super quick visual review.
