Geometry Teaching--Geometrieunterricht. Conference on the Teaching of Geometry (Helsinki, Finland, August 1-4, 1989). Research Report 74.
Pehkonen, Erkki, Ed.
This report contains conference papers on geometry teaching. There were five plenary talks given and a review of Hungarian geometry teaching. The plenary talks addressed background theories of the psychology of learning such as constructivism, perceptional psychology, and motivational psychology. The themes of the 21 short talks were on a varied range of topics from kindergarten to junior high school. The point of emphasis of the conference was on problem-oriented teaching, e.g., pupil activities. Papers include: (1) "Teaching Geometry within the Framework of Constructivism" (J. Leino); (2) "Problems of Language and Communication in the Mathematics Classroom" (H. Maier); (3) "Anregungen der Wahrnehmungspsychologie fur den Geometrieunterricht" (M. Wittoch); (4) "Zum Motivationsproblem im Geometrieunterricht" (E.M. Zbick); (5) "Geometrieunterricht in Ungarn" (A. Ambrus); (6) "Indirekte Denklveisen im Geometrieunterricht" (A. Ambrus); (7) "Using Analogies in Early Secondary Education in Geometry" (G. Becker); (8) "Was nutzt der Computer im Geometrieunterricht?" (P. Bendert); (9) "Computers, Geometry and Logo" (J. Enkenberg); (10) "Flachenauslegen in Klasse 1/2" (A.M. Fraedrich); (11) "Konig Senkrecht IV. und sein Reich" (A.M. Fraedrich); (12) "Problem-Orientated Geometry Teaching with Consideration of Computers" (G. Graumann); (13) "Zur computerunterstutzten Steuerung der mathematischen Begriffsbildung" (L. Haapasalo); (14) "Konstruktion von Aufgabensystemen im Geometrieunterricht" (K. Krainer); (15) "Some Features in the Development of Geometry Teaching" (P. Kupari); (16) "Preschool Geometry" (O. Magne); (17) "Do We Still Need Euclid?" (G. Malaty); (18) "Acht kongruente Wurfel--Vom Bauen mit Bauklotzen zum systematischen Suchen beweglicher Ringe" (K.P. Muller); (19) "Mathematical Activities with the Theorem of the Inscribed Angles" (M. Neubrand); (20) "Verwenden der geometrischen Problemnfelder" (E.
