The Progression in Geometry and Measurement K–12
Macon, GA | March 7, 2019

The goals for the workshop are to help teachers: (a) understand how the K–5 geometry and measurement standards support students’ work in algebraic thinking and fractions, (b) understand how the hands-on approach to geometry builds students intuitive understandings of congruence and similarity in grades 6–8, and (c) understand how to introduce students to abstract geometric reasoning and geometric modeling in high school.
