Developing a new pedagogy for geometry
Jones, Keith and Fujita, Taro (2001) Developing a new pedagogy for geometry. Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 21, (3), 90-95.
Major improvements in the teaching and learning of geometry will only come, argues a recent report from the Royal Society and Joint Mathematical Council, through the development of a completely new pedagogy for geometry. This report examines existing models of pedagogy for geometry and considers what research might have to contribute to the development of new approaches. New pedagogic approaches for geometry need to give greater emphasis to work in 3-D, incorporate the effective use of computer technology, especially dynamic geometry, and focus on discursive methods of engagement and methods of assessment so that the pressure on pupils is not solely to rote learn.
