Geometry: A Guide for TeachersShare this page
Judith D. Sally; Paul J. Sally, Jr.
A co-publication of the AMS and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
This geometry book is written foremost for future and current middle
school teachers, but is also designed for elementary and high school
teachers. The book consists of ten seminars covering in a rigorous way
the fundamental topics in school geometry, including all of the
significant topics in high school geometry. The seminars are crafted to
clarify and enhance understanding of the subject. Concepts in plane and
solid geometry are carefully explained, and activities that teachers can
use in their classrooms are emphasized. The book draws on the pictorial
nature of geometry since that is what attracts students at every level
to the subject. The book should give teachers a firm foundation on
which to base their instruction in the elementary and middle grades. In
addition, it should help teachers give their students a solid basis for
the geometry that they will study in high school. The book is also
intended to be a source for problems in geometry for enrichment programs
such as Math Circles and Young Scholars.
In the interest of fostering a greater awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life, MSRI and the AMS are publishing books in the Mathematical Circles Library series as a service to young people, their parents and teachers, and the mathematics profession.
Titles in this series are co-published with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI).
