Summary

For all math teachers in grades 6-12, this practical resource provides 130 detailed lessons with reproducible worksheets to help students understand geometry concepts and recognize and interpret geometry's relationship to the real world. The lessons and worksheets are organized into seven sections, each covering one major area of geometry and presented in an easy-to-follow format including title focusing on a specific topic/skill, learning objective, special materials (if any), teaching notes with step-by-step directions, answer key, and reproducible student activity sheets. Activities in sections 1-6 are presented in order of difficulty within each section while those in Part 7, "A Potpourri of Geometry," are open-ended and may be used with most middle and high school classes. Many activities throughout the book may be used with calculators and computers in line with the NCTM's recommendations.

Author Biography

Geometry Teacher's Activities Kit is the fourth practical resource for math teachers co-authored by Judith and Gary Muschla. Their earlier works included The Math Teacher's Book of Lists (Prentice Hall, 1995), Hands-On Math Project with Real-Life Applications (The Center, 1996), and Math Starters! 5-to 10-Minute Activities to make Kids Think, Grades 6-12 (The Center, 1999).
