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.
