The Shape of Space

Curriculum Materials

During the 1995 Summer Institute at The Geometry Center, a team of undergraduates, middle and high school mathematics teachers and Center staff developed curriculum materials supporting The Shape of Space video. The team developed a comprehensive curriculum, covering many areas related to the video. The following materials were selected for distribution based on their direct relevence to understanding the video itself.

For your convenience, a printable PostScript (.5 Mb compressed / 24 Mb uncompressed) version of all of these materials is available.
