MATH 6552 - Geometric Thinking and Measurement♦


(3 sem. cr.) Understanding the relationship among geometry and measurement and solving problems using day-to-day real life experiences can motivate and guide students’ thinking and reasoning around these concepts. In this course, middle mathematics teachers learn strategies to connect geometric thinking and measurement to other topics and develop their own conceptual understanding of geometry and measurement by learning what it means to estimate and measure attributes of objects and how to develop fundamental measurement concepts and skills. In this course educators are challenged and supported as they engage in opportunities to foster students’ mathematical processes, proficiencies, and habits of mind around the concepts of shape, spatial relationships, and measurement, including estimation.
