Pickreign, Jamar; Capps, Lelon R.
School Science and Mathematics, v100 n5 p243-51 May 2000
Examines geometry language used in K-6 textbooks and compares the findings to language used in modern mathematics standards documents. Finds a substantial misalignment between the geometry presented in textbooks, the geometry teaching expectations of mathematics education professionals, and the geometry being assessed in student performance measures suggested by the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE). (Contains 29 references.) (Author/WRM)
