My main goal in this classroom is to turn my sophomores on to mathematics. I like to use geometrical constructions throughout the year to give each of them a hands on reality of geometry. When my students create their lessons, I believe that it gives them a common sense look at geometric figures, and allows them to think about their problems instead of having to memorize items. By using better compasses, students are less frustrated, treat their classroom as a mathematician would, instead of feeling like a place where they have to be at a certain time of day. I also think that students have a sense of pride in their work while working with their tools.
