Our favorite lesson helps geometry students learn to use diagrams for thinking and communicating (Sinclair, Pimm and Skelin 2012) and motivates a discussion about similarity. The lesson connects sidewalk chalk-andstring (C&S) constructions of regular hexagons with a dynamic geometry software (DGS) approach.

Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM 2014) calls for integrating into the classroom real-world activities that connect mathematical ideas to other subjects and contexts. Motivated by the desire to make these connections, we devised a paper airplane design task to engage students in various STEM concepts.
