A Comparative Analysis of High School Geometry Curricula: What Do Technology-Intensive, Standards-Based, and Traditional Curricula Have to Offer in Terms Mathematical Proof and Reasoning?
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 27, No. 4 (October 2008) pp. 467–497
In this study, I present an analysis of high school geometry curricula regarding mathematical proof opportunities. I examined eight U.S. high school level geometry textbooks, which were categorized into three main groups: technology-intensive,...
