My students (high school math) love this movie

Flatland is a journey through space (literally) that you can take with your young ones or students to teach them about Geometric concepts. Geometry class can get a little boring if you focus on just theorems and proofs. However, delving into conversations about theoretical Geometry can be a difficult thing to start with young people. Flatland can help! It is a witty, engaging, and informative story that is full of interesting Geometric ideas. Instead of explaining to views that the dimensions represent a point, line, shape, and 3-D objects--like we learned in HS--it explains the dimensions in a way that shows how they build on each other to make the next.
My students (high school math) love this movie! They were so angry that we didn't get to watch the last few minutes. It was great for review and got them really thinking about the connection between the dimensions. They also really wondered what the 4th dimension might look like!
