Just as children are taught fue 3R's, they should also be taught the S (for seeing). Our purpose is to teach children how to see they way a sculptor sees as well as the way a mathematician sees. Children will first make their own geometric sculpture (geos). This direct hands-on experience will facilitate learning to see the way a sculptor sees. Once they have constructed their geo, they can then construct a copy twice as large. They can also view mirror images as well as construct mirror images. These exercises will facilitate learning to see the way a mathematician sees. The children may also construct hypersculptures which will enable them to hypersee.
