Geometry for Teaching

From MathWiki

This page is just barely under construction!

Clearly Geometry for Teaching will include some profound understanding of big ideas, or bridges to big ideas, in geometry. It will include a profound sense of the connections between dimensions, and some grasp of the child's capacities and understandings.

One recommended text for exploring this, with university students would be David Henderson and Daina Taimina: Experiencing Geometry: Euclidean, Non-Euclidean with Strands of History (Prentice Hall), 2004. It has an appropriate emphasis on hands on explorations, reflection on activities, and reasoning, as well as some nice historical links and thoughts.
