Geometry- Area, Perimeter, and Transformation


CETE-TISS

Course Overview


Measurement is the process of quantifying physical entities and phenomenons. In real life we see a myriad of measurements e.g., length, width, height, surface area, volume, mass, time, etc.Thus measurement is considered to be an important aspect of scientific and real life practices.In this course, the participants will be learning about the geometric measurements of area and perimeter and about different types of geometric transformations. They will also learn about students’ difficulties in these concepts and the ways to deal with them. The course also examines case studies of student thinking, their understanding, and misconceptions and explores resources to address the concepts.

CL4STEM

This module was designed as part of The Connected Learning for STEM Project (CL4STEM www.connectedlearningforstem.org). It aims to build capacities of secondary school teachers in Science and Mathematics to foster higher-order thinking with inclusion and equity. CL4STEM is a South-South collaboration among higher educational institutions to adapt and pilot the CLIx model of TPD developed and implemented in India, (www.clix.tiss.edu) in Tanzania, Nigeria, and Bhutan. CL4STEM modules for teacher professional development are Open Educational Resources and involve teachers in short courses and online communities of practice to enrich classroom practice with Pedagogical Content Knowledge, and understanding of Inclusion.

The knowledge generated from this project has been disseminated to stakeholders in the ministries of education and relevant regulatory and professional bodies to seed it into the policy agenda of these countries. Key insights from this project have been shared with other researchers and opinion leaders in the spirit of creating global public good.
