Developing Thinking in Geometry (Published in association with The Open University)
April 14, 2019
Developing Thinking in Geometry enables teachers and their support staff to experience and teach geometric thinking. As well as discussing key teaching principles, the book and accompanying interactive CD include many activities that encourage readers to extend their own learning, and consequently their teaching practices.
The book is constructed around the following key themes:
– language and points of view;
– reasoning using invariance;
– visualising and representing.
These themes draw on teaching principles developed by the team at the Open University’s Centre for Mathematics Education which has a 20-year track record of innovative approaches to teaching and learning geometry.
This is a ‘must have’ text for all primary mathematics specialists, secondary and Further Education mathematics teachers and their support staff. Anyone who wishes to create an understanding and enthusiasm for geometry based upon firm research and effective practice, will enjoy this book.
