Qwill the Quadrilateral and the Time Machine

This was a project from Geometry class. Hmm, I think that was 9th grade. Maybe 10th. I don't remember. The idea was to write a children's book about geometry. This book explains the difference between squares and parallelograms, and at the end also tells what a hexagon is.

Unfortunately, because of computer crashes, servers deleting things without notice, and the fact that schools treat any work that requires actual effort and creativity like pencil shavings, only scattered pages of this book remain. This is unfortunate because I recall a very Beatlish bit of dialogue being written for John. Oh well.

Paul talks about congruent sides.

Page 22
Terry has difficulty with the congruent sides.

Page 23
Paul talks about angles.

Page 24
The shapes ask if Paul has seen the time machine.

The shapes call George Harrison on the phone.
