Subject: Re: teaching geometry

Geometry is the most interesting subject as it works through pictures that they can see. And also because it goes by logic. To teach Geometry at first draw the first part of the theory and explain or ask all the possible facts they can see at the moment. Then the nxt part is drwan and derive all possible facts visible on it . but take care to justify the answers e.g., If a line AB is longer than BC. make sure why is it so :: two possible answers 1)- it is given in the problem or 2) it is assumed ;;; this is to be made clear In this fashion proceed step by step and finally you arrive at the conclusion to see that this is required to be proved. this makes a child understand better and and does not tax the child'd thinking process
