"This book contains an amazing collection of geometric problems that will interest and challenge most readers, though its pedagogical context is designed primarily for mathematics teachers. Part of a three-book series written by the Open University's Centre for Mathematics Education, it focuses on geometric thinking--what it means, how to develop it, and how to recognize it.
'Geometry is often given less time in the teaching timetable than other aspects of mathematics. This book encourages practitioners to think about and raise its profile, indeed achieving what its title suggest' - Primary Practice
An excellent book; highlighted some of the key issues with geometrical reasoning.
This text is a recommended read for student teachers, those with an interest in geometry and for the primary mathematics specialist. The book introduces the ‘big ideas’ of geometry to the reader with a varied amount of activities that help build geometrical understanding through reflection and visualisations. The book also contains a CD-ROM with an array of additional material to support geometrical understanding, including interactive activities and audio files.
I would recommend the book for readers who want to develop their knowledge in geometry. This book allows me to explore different ways to solve problem and how to explain it.
I very much liked the structure of the book and the fact that it had many examples and points of reflection. That said I would have liked to see a chapter about 'rich' mathematical geometrical tasks and a chapter where some students' geometrical solutions were shown in detail and aspects of developing students' thinking in geometry discussed in some detail. Overall definitely a recommended text for my students.
