The Teaching of Geometry at the Pre-College Level.
Steiner, Hans-Georg, Ed.
This is a collection of 24 papers presented or prepared by participants of the Comprehensive School Mathematics Program (CSMP) International Conference in 1970 covering a wide range of topics in mathematics and geometry education. Conference recommendations are summarized, including the use of geometry to lead into other branches of mathematics and to teach conceptual model building, abstention from using geometry primarily to teach logic, and improvement in teacher training courses. The papers are both mathematical and educational in emphasis, covering mathematical topics such as polygons, topology, geometric algebra, conics, inversive geometry, Euclidean geometry, and axiomatics. Educational topics include the relevance of geometry at the seconday level and problems in modern mathematics education, with suggestions for new approaches, particularly with respect to geometry.
