What kinds of fascinating things are just waiting out there to be discovered as we find ways to experiment and explore on our own? Experimentation allows us to find the things that fascinate us. Whether or not we head out with the intention of discovering something new, experimenting, and even a little play, can help us find new solutions, and in this case new shapes!
Mathematics allows us to not only look at the world with a greater understanding, but it also helps us experiment with what’s possible. When we do a calculation in class or use math to understand the dimensions of something before we build it, mathematics allows us to experiment with ideas.
