Prismatic

The sub-subject of prisms in geometry is complex and sometimes leads students to confusion and frustration. Prismatic deals with the use of separating colors and shapes using ChromaDepth glasses. Using this simple system, students are able to understand and dive deeper into this subject, allowing important shapes and equations to come to life and be understood.

 ChromaDepth glasses use technology that allow three main colors to interact in very specific ways. Reds come forward, blues go back the furthest, and yellows go in between the two. By using this system I applied it to how a student can possibly learn and see things more clearly while studying.   Anything that is red is what you should be looking out for, therefore it will pop out more than anything else. The rest of the colors are used in order to highlight other important things in the book;   Blues= extra visuals/shapes  Yellows= exercise and work areas

 The content of the book is fairly simple. I stripped down a modern high school text book of all the information I thought wasn't needed. California standards, random pages of already mentioned content, all things that confuse students and are just fillers.

 The only thing I did add are page breaks like seen above on the left page. Sometimes students just need a visual break. I know I needed it when I was studying geometry. So putting a quick page break of something nice to look at will just allow students to look at something nice for a second and carry on instead of information piled on and on.

 In addition to the book I also made a poster to go along with it. For my senior "Foreword" show I printed 150 copies, attached the glasses to them, and gave them out. All were gone, everyone loved it, and seeing their reaction to the glasses and how it all came together was super satisfying.
