Some Ideas in Geometry That Can Be Taught From K-6
Egsgard, John C.
Educ Stud Math, 2, 4, 478-495, Feb '70
Presents content and approaches for teaching geometry at the K-6 level. By use of the discovery technique, the author demonstrates how various topics can be taught beginning in three-dimensionalspace with the study of solid shapes. The sequence begins with the sorting of solid shapes, is followed by the ordering of solids by size and leads to the measurement of volume. A similar progression is followed in the study of two-dimensional space-shape to size to measure. (RP)
