Geometry Connections: Mathematics for Middle School Teachers
With challenging new standards-based middle school mathematics curricula now in place, future teachers need college-level mathematics courses that better prepare them for their professional careers. This handbook presents a rigorous review of college-level geometry, designed to equip middle grade mathematics teachers with the skills needed for teaching NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) Standards-based curricula. Contains geometry which middle school mathematics teachers will actually have to teach, as well as additional material to deepen future teachers’ knowledge and understanding of geometry. Demonstrate the presentation and use of geometry in the middle school to assist students in linking the typical college geometry course with the standards-based concepts taught by middle school teachers. Includes a variety of activities designed to deepen the connections between the geometry students are studying now and the geometry they will teach. For anyone interested in learning more about geometry.
