Adobe Illustrator for Geometry Teachers

Quick Idea Published 9/24/11 Last updated on 7/24/18

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.

Custom Standards Describe the properties of similarity, compare geometric figures for similarity, and determine scale factors. Design simple experiments and collect data. Determine mean, median and range for quantitative data and from data represented in a display. Use these quantities to draw conclusions about the data, compare different data sets, and make predictions. Use reasoning wit proportions to display and interpret data i circle graphs and histograms. Choose the appropriate data display and know how to create the display unisg a spreadsheet or other graphing technology. Informally justify the Pythagorean Theorem by using measurements, diagrams, and computer software.
