Teaching geometry in lower secondary school in Shanghai, China.
Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 26, (1), .
This paper reports on a study of geometry teaching at the lower secondary school level in Shanghai, China. Through an analysis of data from observing a variety of Year 9 (Grade 8) lessons, and utilising data from the students’ performance in school examinations, the study suggests that teachers in this region of China use classroom strategies that attempt to reinforce visual and deductive approaches in order to develop students’ thinking in the transition to deductive geometry education.
