Publisher Comments:

Geometry Out Loud is the second volume in the popular Math Out Loud series. Written for mathematics teachers of students in grades 9-12, this easy-to-use resource is filled with illustrative examples, strategies, activities, and lessons that will help students more easily understand mathematical text and learn the skills they need to effectively communicate mathematical concepts.

Geometry Out Loud outlines the progression of axiomatic geometry through transformational geometry and shows the differences in visual thinking that have occurred over the years. The book is filled with strategies and activities for learning geometry, numerous illustrative examples, and ready-to-use lessons. Geometry Out Loud gives teachers the tools they need to help their students learn how to communicate about math ideas between student and teacher, student and peers, and student and the wider world. For quick access and easy use, the activities are printed in a big 8-H" x 11" format for photocopying, and are organized into eight chapters:

  • Prereading Strategies and Activities
  • Reading and Vocabulary-Building Strategies and Activities
  • Postreading Strategies and Activities
  • Readings in Geometry
  • Writing to Understand Geometry
  • Writing to Communicate Geometry
  • Writing as Authentic Assessment
  • Writing for Assessment

Designed to hone mathematics and communication skills, Geometry Out Loud encourages students to read out loud, write out loud, and think out loud.

VCamera, March 23, 2009 (view all comments by VCamera)
There are many mistakes within this product. As a certified Teacher of Secondary Mathematics I was disappointed to find three mistakes on the first page I used from the book.

p. 41 The answer spells: AN ISOSCELES OGIANGLE HAS THIS MANY CONGRUESNT SIDES.

I believe the first two letters of the third word should be "TR" not "OG"

These problems continue on p.37, the second worksheet I used. I do not believe any of these clues bring me to number 7, pentagon. Also a "regular rhombus" is redundant. Either they want "a rhombus with four, 90 degree angles" or they want a "regular rectangle"; both would define a square, but a rhombus is ALWAYS regular by definition, so???

Unfortuneately I stopped reading this text after only two random pages, I can only imagine how many mistakes there are throughout.
