Classroom Ideas from Research on Secondary School Mathematics. Part 1: Algebra. Part 2: Geometry.
Dessart, Donald J.; Suydam, Marilyn N.
This document extracts ideas from research on the teaching of algebra and geometry which might prove useful to secondary school teachers. Part I reviews research on algebra; it is divided into sections on classroom instructional practices, cognitive factors, attitudes and affective factors, problem solving, computers and calculators, and testing and prediction. Part 2 focuses on research on geometry, with sections on preceptions of geometry; structuring geometry courses; classroom instructional practices; student characteristics; logic, proof, and problem solving; technological impact; and testing and prediction. Technical details are minimal; particularly useful ideas are highlighted in boxes. A bibliography is included with each part. (MNS)
