Introduction to the papers of WG4: Geometry Education
Introduction to the papers of WG4: Geometry Education
In this overview of CERME10 Working Group 4, on Geometry Education, the three main issues addressed during the working group were the role of material activity in the construction of geometrical concepts (including the use of instruments, manipulation, investigation, modelling, and so on), the nature of visualization and spatial skills, and the issues of language, proof and argumentation. In terms of the role of material activity, the group noted that there is a true need for improving the ‘networking’ between the didactical approach and the psychological approach concerning the use of tools. In terms of the nature of visualization and spatial skills, the group noted the interconnections. In addressing language, proof and argumentation, the group noted the focus on ways of motivating proofs or argumentation.

Abstract

In this overview of CERME10 Working Group 4, on Geometry Education, the three main issues addressed during the working group were the role of material activity in the construction of geometrical concepts (including the use of instruments, manipulation, investigation, modelling, and so on), the nature of visualization and spatial skills, and the issues of language, proof and argumentation. In terms of the role of material activity, the group noted that there is a true need for improving the ‘networking’ between the didactical approach and the psychological approach concerning the use of tools. In terms of the nature of visualization and spatial skills, the group noted the interconnections. In addressing language, proof and argumentation, the group noted the focus on ways of motivating proofs or argumentation.
