Developing Essential Understanding of Geometry and Measurement for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3–5
This book gives teachers of students in grades 3–5 the deep and connected understanding of geometry and measurement that they need to identify and dispel students’ common misconceptions, correct erroneous claims that students make, and move students forward mathematically. By identifying the “big ideas”—overarching, central concepts—and associated “essential understandings” for geometry and measurement, this book unlocks the content and enriches teachers’ knowledge. It prepares teachers to introduce terms from geometry and measurement to their students in ways that not only bolster their vocabulary but also enhance their understanding of concepts and definitions. By helping teachers understand what changes or stays the same when shapes are transformed, the book equips teachers to support and extend students’ understanding of shapes and the space that they occupy. The authors discuss the growth of students’ ideas; examine challenges to teaching, learning, and assessment; and intersperse their discussion with questions for teachers’ reflection.
