n Learning and Teaching Mathematics - Insights into teaching geometry

Teaching geometry at secondary school level is a vital yet complex task, while constantly improving our instruction is an essential and demanding component of the education profession. Taking these premises as a backdrop, this article offers insights into effective pedagogy to stimulate discussion and reflection. The ideas stem from a combination of experiences: observing a multitude of geometry classrooms in both secondary and university settings; working with teachers in a professional development capacity; and teaching geometry myself while being observed by talented and capable mentors. I offer the distillation of these experiences by describing a "model" Euclidean Geometry course - an amalgam of successful characteristics - that blends significant content with knowledgeable pedagogy to foster critical thinking, logical reasoning skills, and a thorough understanding of geometric concepts at a sophisticated level.
