Summary

In Experiencing Geometry on Plane and Sphere, Henderson invites readers to explore the basic ideas of geometry beyond the formulation of proofs. The text conveys a distinctive approach, stimulating readers to develop a broader, deeper understanding of mathematics through active participation including discovery, discussion and writing about fundamental ideas. It provides a series of interesting, challenging problems, then encourages readers to gather their reasonings and understandings of each problem and discuss their findings in an open forum.

Features

  • Reflects the latest teaching styles seen in today's classrooms, emphasizing activities like:
    • Group learning
    • Writing as assessment
  • Provides a launching pad of inviting, challenging, open-ended problems.
  • Places problems in a flexible, learn by doing context that rewards exploration and encourages conjectures and experiments.
  • Designs problems to be accessible to everyone, allowing each student to pursue each problem to the best of their ability.
  • Encourages students to express their thoughts even when they can't solve a particular problem completely in an effort to:
  • Build student confidence
  • Show students where their real difficulties lie
  • Allows students to write their own proofs based upon a deeper, more experiential understanding of ideas.
