Linking geometry and algebra in the school mathematics curriculum

Jones, Keith (2010) Linking geometry and algebra in the school mathematics curriculum In, Future Curricular Trends in School Algebra and Geometry. Charlotte, US, Information Age Publishing pp. 203-215. (Research in Mathematics Education).

Record type: Book Section


This chapter focuses on the linking of geometry and algebra in the teaching and learning of mathematics - and how, through such linking, the mathematics curriculum might be strengthened. Through reviewing the case of the school mathematics curriculum in England, together with examples of how the power of geometry can bring contemporary mathematics to life in the classroom, the chapter argues for greater concinnity in the mathematics curriculum, especially in terms of the harmonious/purposeful reinforcement of mathematical thinking through the linking of geometry and algebra.
