Discovering Geometry helps students internalize geometric properties as they develop their intuition with physical models and build their reasoning ability by reporting and justifying their conclusions.
The program also helps teachers implement the Common Core State Standards with a Teacher Edition that makes it easier to address critically important mathematical practices.
With Discovering Geometry teachers meet students at their current point of knowledge and guide them to a high level of understanding. Students will develop the ability to reason, justify, and prove geometric properties by performing constructions, measuring figures, relating patterns and properties, and discussing their findings.
Discovering Geometry integrates the use of a variety of construction tools, as recommended in the CCSS for Mathematics. Algebra Review lessons and exercises— integrated when applicable to the geometry being taught—will help reinforce students’ algebra skills.
