A major focus of this course is learning the investigative process, a process you used during the Möbius Strip activity in problems 1-9 through 1-12. One part of this process is asking mathematical questions.

Assume your teacher is thinking of a shape and wants you to figure out what shape it is. Write down three questions you could ask your teacher to determine more about his or her shape.  

Many answers are possible. Think about parts of shapes, like sides and angles, and their characteristics, like parallel, obtuse, or right. Think about the differences between the shapes you have learned about. Try to ask questions that will help you differentiate between similar shapes.
