Understanding Geometric Figures Through Drawing and Paper Folding

What are some ways that students can learn about the properties of 2D shapes? What are some effective strategies for teaching the properties of 2D shapes?

During this webcast, Dr. Akihiko Takahashi with a group of Ontario mathematics educators, a grade 4/5 classroom teacher and grades 4 and 5 students are engaged in learning about the properties of 2D shapes through paper folding and the use of different materials, such as compasses, protractors and set squares. The teaching strategies presented for study by Dr. Takahashi, were developed, implemented and refined through a process of lesson study by classroom teachers.
