Synopsis:

All readers can use this book to reignite their fascination with mathematics. Fosters not only a curiosity about geometry itself but crucially focuses on how learners can actively engage in thinking about geometry and its central key ideas.-Sylvia Johnson, Professor, Sheffield Hallam University

Exudes activity and interactivity. A book for learning geometry, learning to think more deeply about geometry, and also about its teaching and learning.-David Pimm, Professor, University of Alberta

Developing Thinking in Geometry enables teachers and their support staff to experience and teach geometric thinking. Discussing key teaching principles, the book and its accompanying interactive CD-ROM include many activities encouraging readers to extend their own learning, and teaching practices.

Drawing on innovative approaches for teaching and learning geometry developed by the Open University's Centre for Mathematics Education, this resource is constructed around the following key themes: InvarianceLanguage and points of viewReasoning using invarianceVisualizing and representing

Developing Thinking in Geometry has been constructed in a unique form in order to enable teachers and their support staff to experience and to teach geometric thinking to pupils aged seven to 16 years. By integrating pedagogy and subject knowledge through experiencing a variety of tasks for learners, including interactive activities on a CD, readers of this book will see how to engage all learners in successfully geometric thinking.

These themes draw on pedagogic constructs developed at The Open University's Centre for Mathematics Education by a team of mathematics educators with a 20-year track record of innovative and influential approaches to teaching and learning geometry.
