Description:

Annenberg/CPB, part of The Annenberg Foundation, develops multimedia resources to help teachers "increase their expertise in their fields and assist them in improving their teaching methods." This section of the Annenberg Teachers Lab features lessons on Shape and Space in Geometry. The website reviews the ways in which geometry is not abstract, but rather is "fun and colorful, instructive and practical." A background article explains how geometry is part of real life and why geometry is an important part of math education. The site offers several classroom activities, which are divided into two broad categories. The first set of activities is about shape and focus on identifying properties of various shapes and measuring their dimensions. The second set is about space and focus on moving objects in your imagination, and visualizing how things will look. An overview page for each set of activities discusses the rationale for the focus on shape and space, and reviews the NCTM Standards addressed through the activities.
