This is the second volume of Bradford Hansen-Smith's series of hands-on instructions for folding circles. This second volume expands on the material in the first book and takes the reader into new territory. While other approaches to teaching geometry are geared toward the analytical and from traditional static modeling, this book brings the experience of these concepts and functions down to the primary grade level by folding paper plates. All that is necessary is to be able to fold a circle in half, observe, and talk about what you have done. Hansen-Smith's revolutionary approach delves into the comprehensive nature of the circle, or that demonstrate the information revealed through folding. This work provides an in-depth exploration of the reformation and transformational nature of the circle, as well as demonstrates the pattern base for the geometric patterns observed in nature from folding circles. There are plenty of books that give geometric and mathematical descriptions of the design and forms observed in nature and the circle as an abstract basis for construction of diagrams. Folding circles is about patterns and how they are formed, reformed, and transformed that is experiential and understandable through the student's own observations. This series of spiral-bound activity guides contains information about art, patterns and design, geometry, crafts, origami, mathematics, and more. Useful in the classroom, homeschooling, or for self-study.
