Summary

IMPACT (Interweaving Mathematics Pedagogy and Content for Teaching) is an exciting new series of texts for teacher education which aims to advance the learning and teaching of mathematics by integrating mathematics content with the broader research and theoretical base of mathematics education.

The Learning and Teaching of Geometry in Secondary Schools reviews past and present research on the teaching and learning of geometry in secondary schools and proposes an approach for design research on secondary geometry instruction.

Areas covered include:

  • teaching and learning secondary geometry through history;
  • the representations of geometric figures;
  • students’ cognition in geometry;
  •  teacher knowledge, practice and, beliefs;
  • teaching strategies, instructional improvement, and classroom interventions;
  • research designs and problems for secondary geometry.

Drawing on a team of international authors, this new text will be essential reading for experienced teachers of mathematics, graduate students, curriculum developers, researchers, and all those interested in exploring students’ study of geometry in secondary schools.
