Student work pieces

At the NVvW 2019 study day, three helpful children asked if I may need their help. I was curious how far they would come with a minimal explanation. They quickly realized the system of papers with red arrows and green lines and they quickly discovered which 3D piece belonged to which paper. Within half an hour I received the photos below.
Math teachers, on the other hand, work much more thoughtfully, go for complete understanding, and needed more time.

Starting assignment young students

Young students start with a simple assignment where the rules are quickly discovered. This two-layer muqarnas follows the rule "back on front". Students were handed over a construction plate for a quick start.

Variations for the same construction plate

While the printer is serviced for regular maintenance, Max has ideas for variations which all fit at the same construction plate. An extension to the easy assignment is the task to generate alternatives.
