With challenging new standards-based middle school mathematics curricula now in place, future teachers need college-level mathematics courses that better prepare them for their professional careers. This handbook presents a rigorous review of college-level geometry, designed to equip middle grade mathematics teachers with the skills needed for teaching NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) Standards-based curricula.nbsp;Contains geometry which middle school mathematics teachers will actually have to teach, as well as additional material to deepen future teachersrsquo; knowledge and understanding of geometry. Demonstrate the presentation and use of geometry in the middle school to assist students in linking the typical college geometry course with the standards-based concepts taught by middle school teachers. Includes a variety of activities designed to deepen the connections between the geometry students are studying now and the geometry they will teach.For anyone interested in learning more about geometry.
