n Learning and Teaching Mathematics - Devising explorative Euclidean Geometry questions

Volume 2015, Issue 19
  • ISSN : 1990-6811


Especially now that Euclidean Geometry is once again a component of the Grade 11 and 12 curriculum, it is important for us to provide pupils with opportunities to engage with suitable geometric contexts in explorative and flexible ways. We should be exposing our pupils to scenarios that require them to think creatively, and with minimal directional guidance. The beauty of such scenarios is that students are exposed to a variety of approaches and strategies, as different students are likely to tackle such questions in different ways. A single simple scenario can often lead to a wealth of exploration and generalisation.
