Clements, Douglas H.; Battista, Michael T.
This book, the 10th volume in the Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME) Monograph Series, discusses the geometry curriculum and investigates how elementary school students learn geometric concepts and how Logo programming and its turtle graphics might affect this learning. This volume also provides details on the development, structure, and content of the geometry curriculum, educational implications of the research, and the broad issues of Logo and geometry in mathematics education. (Contains approximately 155 references, 39 tables, and 34 figures.) (MM)
