The University of Arizona: IMPACTS-MS Level 2 – Digging Deep into Geometry in Grades 6-8
Geometry is the attempt to understand space, shape, and dimension. Within mathematics, geometry has been a source of great insight into other mathematical domains, such as algebra. Geometry enables students to represent and make sense of the world, analyze and solve problems, and represent abstract symbols pictorially to facilitate understanding. However, students are often asked to memorize geometric properties and formulas rather than to explore the underlying concepts through worthwhile tasks that involve hands-on experiences.
Come join us as we explore the expectations for middle grades geometry, the progression of geometric thought through the van Hiele levels, and how to tailor instruction to provide the appropriate experiences for students to develop through the phases of learning.
**This workshop is designed to help teachers with previous experience with IMPACTS-MS workshops to dive deeper into their instruction, but it is open to ALL.**
