The Geometry Modules provide opportunities for those using the materials to develop deep knowledge of different geometries while also understanding how to leverage that knowledge while helping others learn. The materials are designed to support users as they engage in mathematical practices that are proven to help develop deep understandings of advanced content in three modules: axiomatic systems, transformational geometry, and similarity and measurement. Instructional activities encourage both a) conjecturing and problem solving as it relates to advanced geometries and geometric concepts and b) using connections to K-12 mathematics (including the thinking of K-12 learners) as a space of exploration and learning.
All too often, mathematics teacher candidates struggle to see the value of the mathematics content courses they take. MODULE(S2) not only provides candidates with the content they need as future teachers, but makes direct connections to teaching practice. Moreover, the materials support best practices in mathematics education, including an embedded emphasis on equity, that will support their overall professional growth.GARY MARTIN, LEADERSHIP TEAM MEMBER OF THE MATHEMATICS TEACHER EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP (MTEP),

Our Geometry Materials
My students found the materials engaging. I found that the materials were very useful in their developing of understanding of alternative geometries like non-euclidean, spherical, hyperbolic, taxicab, incidence, and transformative geometry.module(s2) Instructor
I have more in my “tool belt” for teaching these concepts than I did before. I feel that I can explain geometry from different angles as well as being ready to work with a student who may see things from different perspectives.Pre-service teacher
