Geometric Selections for Middle School Teachers (5-9). The Curriculum Series.
Aichele, Douglas B.; Olson, Melfried
This document is written for middle school teachers of grades five through nine who do not have specialized backgrounds in geometry. It is arranged in three parts. The first part provides a brief overview of the geometry curriculum of the middle school that includes the present state of affairs, a rationale for inclusion of geometry in the curriculum, the geometry that is suggested for instruction, and suggestions for teaching methods. Part two covers the following selected topics: axiomatic systems and models, distance, congruence, constructions, and transformational geometry. The material in this part is not designed for immediate use, but requires adaptation to particular classroom settings. Most sections include suggested exercises, learning activities, and selected references. The third part is an extensive bibliography of references for both readings and additional activities in geometry. (MP)
