Landscape of Geometry: Teacher's Guide/Student Workbook.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Instructional Technology.
This guide is support material for geometry teachers in middle schools or high schools in South Carolina. The guide describes the content of each program in the television series and suggests further learning activities for the students. The geometry that underlies the world around us is presented through applications. Contents of the series include points, lines, planes, flatness, sighting a two-dimensional plane through the three-dimensional world, symmetry, angle measurement, intersecting lines, parallel lines, corresponding angles, right angles, perpendicular lines, Pythagorean Theorem, slope, and transformations, among other things. Many experiments and hands-on activities are suggested to help in concept understanding. The tone of both the programs and activities is casual. It is assumed that teachers will "formalize" the plane geometry according to their own methods of teaching. (MPN)
