A comparison of the teaching of geometrical ideas in Japan and the US
Jones, K. (1997) A comparison of the teaching of geometrical ideas in Japan and the US. Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 17, (3), 65-68.
The release of a videotape of typical geometry teaching in Japan and the US allows a comparison to be made of the teaching methods typically employed. While the typical US lesson emphasised skill acquisition, the typical Japanese lesson focused on the solving of complex problems through pupil exploration and presentation.
