It has been a fun couple of days including recreational math, our economic system, and some beautiful renaissance and medieval art. One of our first math projects was learning to make hexaflexagons (go to google plus to see tutorial). Personally I have become a bit obsessed with making them, folding all of the triangles and then twisting them into a hexagon. Once you start, it's pretty hard to stop until you're finished! Our first point game auction will be tomorrow and I'm sure we all have interesting strategies to "win" this. For the art, we have been experimenting using the Google Art Project. Most of us had no idea it existed, but now I'm sure a lot of us have used it outside of class as well to zoom in and find details in magnificent paintings. Hopefully these will be an amazing eight weeks!
