Mathematical Quilts--No Sewing Required by Diana Venters and E.K. Ellison. Published by Key Curriculum Press. For grades 6-12. This book was born because two mathematics teachers who worked together also took quilting classes together and began to see the quilt possibilities in many of the mathematical concepts in texts and journals. They became convinced of the value of designing quilts as a learning tool. The activities in this book help student improve their visualization skills, as well as their skills in analysis, informal deduction, and formal deduction - levels one -four of the van Hiele model of the five levels of learning geometry. This book should be especially helpful to those students who have trouble with formal geometry but are otherwise capable students because its activities take these students through the first three levels of learning successfully so that they are able to also be successful in the fourth level.
The book is divided into three sections, each featuring quilts with similar designs: "Golden Ratio Quilts," "Spiral Quilts," "Right Triangle Quilts", and the "Tiling Quilts." After students are introduced to the theme, they encounter a series of activities that guide them through the mathematical concepts related to that particular kind of quilt design. Each section includes research activities, technology activities for graphing calculators and computers, and Internet activities. In conclusion students recreate the quilt pattern with an emphasis on the art of the design. Students can actually learn how to sew the quilt if they are interested in doing it. 168 pages. More than 50 blackline activity masters included. Punched to fit standard three-hole notebook. Cat #BTH-482. $18.86-D
More Mathematical Quilts--No Sewing Required by Diana Venters and E.K. Ellison. Published by Key Curriculum Press. For grades 6-12. The authors are both mathematics teachers and quilters. They saw the possibilities of using quilts to reveal the beauty within mathematics and present in this book 15 additional quilts (to those presented in their first book, Mathematical Quilts). Their visual introduction to mathematical objects allows students to explore mathematical art as they learn skills essential to future success. The book is divided into four thematic sections, each of which contains guides for recreating the quilts and activities that further develop the related mathematical concepts. From fractals to shadows of four-dimensional shapes, students have opportunities for hands-on exploration of important mathematical objects and to practice solving problems. 181 pages.

Geometry by Lynette Long.
Barron's Educational, 2001. 307 pages. If geometry tends to
freak you out, this book will help you understand it and even enjoy learning it.
You’ll begin to see that finding solutions to geometric problems is as much fun
as solving intriguing puzzles. And there are lots of diagrams to help you learn
the terms, theorems, and postulates that form the foundation of geometry. You’ll
learn to work with angles of all kinds, find the relationships between parallel
and perpendicular lines, and discover the characteristics of shapes such as
triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles. The abstract concepts you learn will
become more concrete with experiments you can do. And the author also gives tips
on studying and using mini-proofs as first steps to understanding formal
For grade 8 and up.

Patty Paper Geometry by Michael Serra. A Key Curriculum Press book. Learn how to use the translucent squares of paper used by restaurants to separate hamburger patties to enhance the study of geometry. You may already use paper folding for geometry. . Maybe you tried waxed paper and found it hard to write on, or used other paper that you couldn't see through. Now there's patty paper, the perfect paper for geometric investigations. Manufactured in perfect squares, you can write on the paper and see creases and traces when you fold them. It's a great way to explore geometry from a hands-on, tactile approach. And best of all, it's probably the world's cheapest manipulative. Pick it up where restaurant supplies are sold.
Patty Paper Geometry includes dozens of activities that foster cooperative learning, increase students' geometric vocabulary, and motivate kids to read, write, and talk about geometry. Constructions are performed more accurately and geometric discoveries are made faster with patty papers. At the end of their investigations, students have discovered most of the properties of geometric figures studied in high school geometry courses. Here is a list of the investigations included:
Patty Paper Geometry is designed as two books. The first, a blackline master book, contains twelve chapters of guided and open investigations. Open investigations encourage students to explore their own methods of discovery, and guided investigations provide more direction to students, or can be used as a teacher's guide. Each chapter includes many spiraled exercise sets, providing constant review. A separate student workbook is also available, containing all of the open investigations as well as some exercise sets. Use Patty Paper Geometry as a supplement to your geometry program or even as a major course of study.

Straight Forward Series, Large Editions, Geometry
This series presents the basic facts of the subjects
covered in each book. There is an assessment test at the beginning of each book. This
helps you determine what your student needs to learn. Then there is instruction (about
one-half page per lesson on the average) in a basic concept or skill. This is followed by
exercises which allow the student to practice the skill taught. At the end of the book is
a final test to see if the students have mastered the skills. These books are

If your students aren't quite ready for the full geometry course yet, maybe you should start them with Pre-Geometry 1 (BTH-064)and Pre-Geometry 2 (BTH-065)from this same series. These help students progress from basic mathematics to geometry and provide the mathematical skills to succeed in geometry groupings. Abstractions and structured logic are kept to a minimum. Each pre-geometry topic includes an explanation and multiple exercises to reinforce the explanation presented. These books are 3.56 each.
Unfolding Mathematics with Unit Origami
by Betty Franco. Key Curriculum Press. Black Line Activity Masters, punched
to fit standard three-hole notebook. This book, with its elegant illustrations and
detailed folding and assembly directions, will show you and your students how to create
intriguing three-dimensional models. the sixteen activities, in blackline master form,
first present simple folding techniques that transform square pieces of paper into a
variety of geometric shapes. As students repeat the folding sequences, they create
identical units that combine to form tetrahedra, cubes, octahedra, and much more. After
they learn the basics, students can go on to invent their own unique polyhedra. These
activities can to used in middle and high school algebra and geometry classes. Most can be
finished in one class period. 115 pages.
