This fascinating title reviews the teaching and learning of school geometry from the perspective of both the new teacher and the more experienced teacher. It is designed to extend and deepen subject knowledge and to offer practical advice and ideas for the classroom in the context of current practice and research. Particular emphasis is given to the following elements:
- Understanding the key ideas of the geometry curriculum
- learning geometry effectively: lessons from research and current practice
- misconceptions and errors
- the role of technology in learning geometry.
'[T]his is an important book which deserves a wide readership amongst student teachers and serving teachers at all levels of experience...For all concerned with the learning and teaching of mathematics generally and geometry specifically, I commend this book to you.'
