Right after school tomorrow I will be heading to the NCTM (National Council for Teachers of Mathematics) Regional Conference. This will be my fourth time attending the conference and my second time as a presenter. Have any of you ever heard of the Golden Rectangle or Golden Ratio? That is what my presentation is about. I will basically be teaching other math teachers several activities to do in their classrooms that have to do with the Golden Ratio/Rectangle. They will be learning about Fibonacci's rabbits and the European villages along with how the Golden Ratio is found in nature, architecture, music and art! I took an interest in this concept a few years ago and the more I read about it, the more I discover. The excitement is setting in as I have a time slot on Thursday morning - opening day of the conference. I'm honored to share my workshop with other teachers as well as attend many workshops to learn from others.
