Nets and introduction to the group projects. Here are the nets notes. After the notes, we did a stations activity. Every station had a figure package and each group had to determine if each figure in the package was a net, and, if it was, what shape it would fold up to make. Groups were divided for the group project. We will readdress roles next class. Make sure someone in your group brings poster paper for next class.

We will be doing peer review this class. Each group will be split up. Hearts and team leads will group together, Diamonds and Clubs will group together and Spades will group together. Each group will have a chance to present their poster and see two other posters. Give constructive feedback to the posters you see and gain presenting experience when you present. After, groups presenting the same shape will group together and have a chance to get more ideas. After, all groups will have a chance to work on their posters. Homework for today: textbook pg 180 #3, 4, 7; pg 180 #5, 6, 10
