Awareness Geometry. Mathematics-Methods Program Unit.
Kerr, Donald R., Jr.; And Others
This unit is 1 of 12 developed for the university classroom portion of the Mathematics-Methods Program (MMP), created by the Indiana University Mathematics Education Development Center (MEDC) as an innovative program for the mathematics training of prospective elementary school teachers (PSTs). Each unit is written in an activity format that involves the PST in doing mathematics with an eye toward application of that mathematics in the elementary school. This document is one of four units that are devoted to the geometry units of MMP and to the unit itself, the text has six activity sections titled: Geometry Around You; A Sagging Door--Stability of Shapes; Constructing Solid Shapes from Plane Shapes; Cross Sections; Vertices, Edges, Surfaces, and Euler; and Implications for Teaching Geometry.
