I was looking for an artsy project for my trig students to do on those odd couple of days before Thanksgiving Break. On Pinterest, I had pinned a picture of a Wheel of Theodorus, and I used that as my inspiration. I gave my students the first page of this project sheet that I found thanks to good old google.
My students definitely struggled with reading the instructions and carrying them out. I found that my students who tried to follow the steps on a piece of notebook paper first before starting on their final project that was to be turned in produced much better looking results!
It was fun to see what creative ideas my students came up with to turn their spirals into. I definitely need to look for more opportunities to give my students to be creative inside the classroom. They never fail to surprise me!
