In this paper we present an experiment that we conducted last spring (May 2012) in a high school in Sicily. The activities concerned some properties of quadrilateral and tetrahedron and aimed to introduce spatial geometry through a correspondence that can be established between the two figures, by using suitable definitions. The study is part of a wide research centred on the investigation of visual challenges involved in doing spatial geometry and the role of technology to address these challenges.

CLOSE YOUR EYES AND SEE…AN APPROACH TO SPATIAL GEOMETRY

Abstract

In this paper we present an experiment that we conducted last spring (May 2012) in a high school in Sicily. The activities concerned some properties of quadrilateral and tetrahedron and aimed to introduce spatial geometry through a correspondence that can be established between the two figures, by using suitable definitions. The study is part of a wide research centred on the investigation of visual challenges involved in doing spatial geometry and the role of technology to address these challenges.
