Brown, Margaret, Jones, Keith, Taylor, Ron and Hirst, Ann, (2004) Developing geometrical reasoning Putt, Ian, Faragher, Rhonda and McLean, Mal (eds.)

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper summarises a report (Brown, Jones & Taylor, 2003) to the UK Qualifications and Curriculum Authority of the work of one geometry group. The group was charged with developing and reporting on teaching ideas that focus on the development of geometrical reasoning at the secondary school level. The group was encouraged to explore what is possible both within and beyond the current requirements of the UK National Curriculum and the Key Stage 3 strategy, and to consider the whole attainment range.
