one s surroundings and the objects in them NCTM Standards pg 49 Learning Geometry Geometry helps students represent and make sense of the world At every grade geometry is best learned by beginning at the concrete level Students experience and investigate properties of shapes and figures with a variety of manipulatives Younger students sort and classify Older students use manipulatives to find patterns and discover relationships between geometric figures Challenging activities at the conceptual level allow students to develop and fine tune their explanations and thought processes These experiences lay the groundwork for formal geometry Geometry has a language and vocabulary of its own but the understanding of vocabulary should not be the focus Vocabulary and definitions evolve from experiences constructing visualizing drawing sorting and measuring two and three dimensional figures NCTM Standards The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics NCTM in its Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics 1989 states Spatial understandings are necessary for interpreting understanding and appreciating our inherently geometric world To improve spatial sense students need to draw and sketch shapes have experiences that focus on geometric relationships the direction orientation and perspectives of objects in space combine shapes to create other shapes construct draw measure visualize compare transform and classify geometric figures NCTM Standards state that in grades K 4 the mathematics curriculum should include two and three dimensional geometry so that students can describe model draw and classify shapes investigate and predict the results of combining subdividing and changing shapes develop spatial sense relate geometric ideas to number and measurement ideas recognize and appreciate geometry in their world In grades 5 8 the mathematics curriculum should include the study of the geometry of one two and three dimensions in a variety of situations so that students can identify describe compare and classify geometric
