Boxes, Squares and Other Things

A Teacher's Guide for a Unit in Informal Geometry
Marion I. Walter

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics | 1970 | pdf | 2,6 Mb


Descrição: This unit describes an experience in informal geometry that is based on work with construction paper and milk cartons. The description is mostly of work actually carried out by children in the elementary grades involving such mathematical concepts as congruence, symmetry, the idea of a geometric transformation, and some basic notions of elementary group theory. The purposes of the unit are (1) to give students experience in visualizing two and three dimensional objects, and (2) to give students opportunity to learn to raise questions, pose problems, and learn to solve them.

Augustus De Morgan

on-line: (The Open Court Publishing Company, 1910)

Kessinger Publishing | 2004 | 300 páginas

Descrição: 1910. Augustus De Morgan was an important innovator in the field of logic. In addition, he made many contributions to the field of mathematics and the chronicling of the history of mathematics. He writes in the Preface that his object has been to notice particularly several points in the principles of algebra and geometry, which have not obtained their due importance in our elementary works on these sciences. Contents: On Arithmetical Notation; Elementary Rules of Arithmetic; Arithmetical Fractions; Decimal Fractions; Algebraical Notation and Principles; Elementary Rules of Algebra; Equations of the First Degree; On the Negative Sign, etc.; Equations of the Second Degree; On Roots in General, and Logarithms; On the Study of Algebra; On the Definitions of Geometry; On Geometrical Reasoning; On Axioms; On Proportion; and Application of Algebra to the Measurement of Lines, Angles, Proportion of Figures and Surfaces.
