Contexts for teaching geometry
Jones, K. (1995) Contexts for teaching geometry. Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 15, (3), 41-42.
This report of a meeting of the geometry working group considers what it means to educate someone geometrically and what are useful contexts in which to consider geometry. An undergraduate unit on symmetry is described and this leads to the discussion of context. The relationship between geometry and algebra is briefly mentioned.
