Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Traditionally, in the United States, geometry instruction is concentrated at the secondary level; high-school students study Euclidean geometry in a concentrated, year-long course that emphasizes deductive proof. Even though educational policy is a local matter theoretically decided school district by school district, teacher by teacher, there are nonetheless strong commonalities in the mathematics education offered to many students; their opportunities to study geometry are limited.
