MG5340 - Geometry for Middle/Secondary School Teachers

Credits: 4

This course focuses on Euclidean geometry concepts central to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics [CCSSM]. The mathematical content of the course aligns with the CCSSM standards (gr. 5-12) in geometry. Students will develop conceptual understanding of geometric properties and relationships, applying and analyzing concepts, procedures, and proofs. Activities are designed to demonstrate how the Standards for Mathematical Practice in CCSSM can be integrated in the everyday learning experiences of every student. Class discussions are centered on thinking processes, habits of mind, conceptual understanding, and dispositions that students need in order to develop a deep, flexible, and enduring understanding of mathematics.
