GEOMETRY VIA ORIGAMI
COURSE CANCELLED

Credit: .5 | Cost: $250
Students Entering Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12 | Virtual
Meets: July 12 - July 28 | M/T/W | 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM | 3 weeks | Virtual

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN EVENING COURSE.
This is a math elective course.

Material: Global Art Folia 6-Inch by 6-Inch Origami Paper, 10 Colors, 500-Pack (approx. $17)

Geometry Via Origami is a course that supports and enhances geometrical reasoning and mathematical learning. Geometric origami consists of many repeating “units” that are then assembled to create a more complex geometric form. Once the students learn how to make the basic unit for a design, they repeat the process to make enough copies of the unit to assemble the final form. The math comes entirely through the discussion with the students through making a module/unit.

Before each fold, we will discuss the shapes that we are pressing into the paper, classify the angles, and invite the students to name each step to help them remember the sequence of paper folding. This way, students can remember that “the large trapezoid comes after the double horizontal rectangle step.” By folding while discussing geometry, students are also more likely to memorize vocabulary-heavy geometry; they create kinesthetic associations to go along with the geometry terms

It is an enjoyable activity that helps develop hand-eye coordination and attention to detail, encourages peer support, and fosters relationship building.

Although making the units is repetitive, the students will enjoy it as a calming, almost meditative process, helping them manage anxiety and stress.

JOURNALISM

Non-Credit | Cost: $200
Students Entering Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12

Journalism equips students with an understanding of the principles and practice of journalism: how to recognize good stories, gather facts through skillful interviewing and research, develop sources, craft welcoming leads and satisfying endings, and create news and feature articles that inform and engage readers. Rewriting to achieve mastery is particularly emphasized. Students also learn the difference between journalism and public relations and how to structure narratives to fashion different types of articles.
