Researching the learning of geometrical concepts in the secondary classroom: problems and possibilities
Jones, K. (1995) Researching the learning of geometrical concepts in the secondary classroom: problems and possibilities. Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 15, (2), 31-34.
Researching the learning of geometrical concepts in the secondary classroom presents both problems and opportunities. The specification of the geometry curriculum, the need to concretise abstract geometrical objects for classroom activities, the role of the teacher and the need to reconsider geometrical notions from different viewpoints are all factors which affect the acquisition of geometrical concepts by pupils. These factors can provide problems for the researcher. Yet there are also significant opportunities both to influence policy decisions and to contribute to both theoretical and practical debates regarding the teaching and learning of geometry.
