I have to start this post with an apology for *totally* butchering Ann-Marie Ison’s name at the start of the first video. I’d let my son move in front of me to see the pictures, and . . . . oh gracious. So sorry.
Despite that horrible start, this was a really fun project. I saw these three pictures on twitter today via a Dan Anderson retweet:
The first thing I did with the boys for this project was just look at the pictures and talk a little bit about what they thought was going on. [sorry again for getting the name so terribly wrong]
Next we made our own version. It took a while for the boys to suggest something that we could actually draw (!) but this was really fun. We got to talk about modular arithmetic, primes, and even a bit of geometry.
So, a super fun project. I’m so glad to have seen this pictures on twitter today!!
