The Astounding Power of Area

Overview

Here is a flowchart showing the story of area-thinking throughout the upper curriculum. Combine this with the story of Exploding Dots and WHOA, what a profound student experience of mathematics (especially with the spectacular collision of the two stories in high school polynomial work)!

These notes are written for educators wanting to look back over the 6-12 curriculum. Actual classroom materials for students based on these notes will be developed by an eager community folk and will soon populate the site too.

For superb guidance on the supporting K-5 piece, see the work of Geri Lorway (specifically, Geri Lorway’s PDF ), and we’ll have the whole adult and student experiences covered. WHOA again!
