  • Introduction
    to help develop mathematical thinking skills Spatial sense is an intuitive feel for 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

  • Staff development
    strand of Geometry The goal of TEAMS programming is to give students experiences that are aligned with their level of mathematical development The topic of geometry is developed from the early grades into the middle grades Throughout the levels mathematical language is developed Discourse between students is promoted skills in analyzing and classifying are expanded The study of geometry helps students represent and make sense of the world NCTM Curriculum and Evaluation Standards pg 112 Program Overview The two staff development programs are designed to help teachers facilitate programs from Shapes in Space during the upcoming school year Shapes in Space emphasizes the importance of geometry and spatial awareness in the mathematics curriculum from 1st through 8th grade The staff development programs address teaching strategies that improve accessiblity and develop a rich understanding of geometry for all students These teaching strategies reinforce the TEAMS philosophy that Math power can be attained by ALL students Teachers will complete a learning styles analysis become aware of effective strategies to teach geometry at all grade levels view software and web sites that supplement lessons in geometry find out how to work with manipulatives experience a cooperative activity become aware of publications from the NCTM understand the importance of writing in the mathematics classroom Materials Handout Materials Modality Strengths SD 1 duplicate one per person Sorting and Classifying SD 2 duplicate one per group of four Teaching Geometry Concepts Shapes in Space program guide Cooperative Learning Activity SD 3 Manipulatives Geoblocks or Polydrons Color Tiles or Connecting Cubes Geoboards Pentominoes Staff Development 1 and 2 Telecast Activities Teaching geometry Sorting and classifying Developing concepts Teaching strategies Cooperative learning Questioning techniques Integrating technologies Teaching diverse populations Assessment How to Communicate with TEAMS Contact Jeannie Toshima at Phone 562 922 6185 FAX 562 922 6486 Email

  • Stages of Learning Geometry
    level has its own language and set of symbols what is implicit of a class of shapes at one level is explicit at the next level e g students use the properties of a class of shapes when classifying at Level 0 but they only begin to isolate and describe them when thinking at Level 1 and levels are subject to reduction by substituting a rote procedure for thinking Level Description Example 0 Visual Judges shapes by their appearances 1 Analysis Sees figures in terms of their components and discovers properties of a class of shapes 2 Informal Deduction Logically interrelates previously discovered properties 3 Deduction Proves theorems deductively 4 Rigor Establishes theorems in different postulational systems Students need to move from one level to the next within each of the topics van Hieles proposed a sequence of five phases of learning These provide teachers a structure for organizing classroom instruction in geometry as described below Level Description Example 0 Inquiry Students discuss and develop questions on a topic to be explored 1 Directed Orientation Students explore sets of carefully sequenced activities 2 Explicitation Students express explicit views and questions about inherent structures of their investigations 3 Free Orientation Students
