## Session 10: 6-8, Homework

Solutions are not provided for these homework problems, since answers will vary depending on individual experiences.

### Problem H1

Interview a teacher in the grade level above you. Pick one of the problems in this session, and ask him or her the following questions:

- How does the content of this problem prepare students for geometric thinking in your grade?
- Why do you think this content is important?
- How could this problem be extended for students in your grade?

### Problem H2

Look at a lesson or activity in your own mathematics program for your grade level that you think has potential for developing students’ geometric reasoning. If you were to use this lesson or activity now, after taking this course, how might you modify or extend it to bring out more of the important ideas about geometry?
