The Geometry Curriculum
Posted:
Jan 20, 1994 1:47 PM


The National Science Foundation has recently funded 13 major curriculum development projects. One of the high school projects (the MATH Connections Project of the Hartford Alliance) is just in the process of deciding what their geometry curriculum should be, and would like relevant issues to be discussed on the Geometry Forum.
Math curriculum is like the weather  everybody complains about it but nobody does anything about it. Here's a chance to give some meaningful input to a project which will be having a genuine effect in the not very distant future.
I'll now post something from Bill Berlinghoff, a senior writer for MATH Connections, which discusses their approach to curriculum and his preliminary opinions on the geometry curriculum.
This is an important possibility for input from a broad segment of the mathematics community. I hope we hear from you.
