This chapter analyses a range of key issues in the teaching and learning of geometry. These include the nature of geometry, why geometry is important in the curriculum at school level and beyond, what geometry can be included at the school level, the aims of teaching geometry, and how geometry can be best taught and learnt. Also addressed are the uses of information and communication technology in geometry education. The chapter concludes that the twenty-first century is one where spatial thinking and visualisation are vital areas for education.
