Teacher knowledge and professional development in geometry

Jones, Keith (2000) Teacher knowledge and professional development in geometry Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 20, (3), pp. 109-114.

Record type: Article


The successful teaching of geometry depends on teachers knowing a good deal of geometry and how to teach it effectively. This report provides a review of what is known about teacher knowledge in geometry, how the knowledge develops and how this knowledge development can be supported by professional development .The available evidence suggests that attention could usefully be paid both to the initial and continuing education of teachers of mathematics in terms of their background and understanding of geometry.
