Targeted Teaching through a Learning Progression in Geometric Reasoning


Come and explore some engaging activities for geometry using easily accessible materials. These activities are linked to an evidence based geometric reasoning framework of big ideas across the middle years of schooling developed by the Reframing Mathematics Futures Project based at RMIT. Targeting teaching for students to help them think mathematically and catering for the diversity of experience within any classroom can be done easily using any of these tasks. Evidence from international studies is that Australia lags behind the rest of the world in geometry. We can make a difference to the students’ futures helping them to more easily access STEM through tasks that are fun and easy to use but that focus on the important big ideas in geometric thinking. It would be useful for delegates to have some A4 paper, a ruler and a pencil.
