Geometry and measurement: The basics
On this page there are links to papers on four modules that explain the basic concepts of geometry and measurement:
- Geometrical properties
- Perimeter, area and volume
- Transforming shapes
These papers provide details of the knowledge students should have and some of the misconceptions they may hold. Examples are given to illustrate these misconceptions, provide suggestions on how to address them, and support teachers in developing pedagogical and content knowledge.
