Nov 5  Fri 
 Geometry of our Earth presentations begin
(counts as a project grade and towards the speaking designator)
Buy a light colored ball which is approximately 6 inches to a foot in diameter that you won't mind writing on with permanent marker during class. Be sure that this ball is round and is not an inflatable ball since these don't work well. In addition, if you have masking tape, then bring that to class.

 Practice the folding activities and prepare to present them
to the rest of the class, if called on. Be sure that you can explain
WHY these work. These come from 2 handouts
that I've given you:
Folding an angle bisector
Folding the perpendicular bisector of a line segment
Folding the perpendicular from a given point to a given line
Folding the perpendicular through a point on a line
Folding a line parallel to a given line through a given point
Folding to show that the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees
Folding the intersection of the altitutes of a triangle
Folding the intersection of the angle bisectors of a triangle
Folding the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of the sides
of a triangle
Folding the intersection of the medians of a triangle
Folding to show that the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of
the squares on the two other legs of a right triangle
Folding to show that (x+y)(xy)=x^{2} y^{2}
