Analysis of Shapes. Mathematics-Methods Program Unit. Student Manual [and] Instructor's Manual.
Kerr, Donald R., Jr.; LeBlanc, John F.
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 geometry in the elementary school. In addition to an introduction to the geometry units of the MMP and to the shapes unit itself, the student text presents an overview and sections on straight lines, triangles, circles, and verification. The instructor's manual parallels the pupil text and provides information on the content of the unit, timetable suggestions, major questions, rules for materials preparation, comments and suggested procedure, and answers for problems in the student document.
