    POW: Viewing shapes in flatland (Due 1st Friday)
    Problem: Figures of flatland use either the sense of touch or sight to figure out what shapes they are. Let’s assume that “feeling up” others is rude, as it is for shapes of higher order, what mathematical skills to the shapes in flatland need in order to identify each other. Remember: they use fog to figure out depth. If the fog comes in affect halfway along the distance of a line, how could you identify them? What if they came to you straight on from their vertex? What if they came to you perfectly along a line?
    Students will be required to come up with an idea to solve this problem and write out a problem statement, process and conclusion of the problem. Their solution should be 2 pages long.
    Group discussions:
    Throughout the coverage of the time travel component of the unit, students will participate in group discussions based on readings and other media. The purpose is to spark creative thinking around an unrealistic possibility that has saturated popular culture. The discussions will be in small groups and with the entire class. The students will lead, moderate, and participate in the discussion while the teacher observes and may contribute or refocus, if needed.

    Students will write a paper detailing what they would like to see in the future considering the economic, social, and global landscapes. Then they will have to reflect and detail what they can do personally to create that future. We want the students to determine how they can shape the future and see it as their responsibility.
