Enhancing Students’ Proficiency with Proof in Geometry for Teachers' Courses

Friday, March 15th, 2024
11:00 am PT | 12:00 pm MT | 1:00 pm CT | 2:00 pm ET
Presenter: Orly Buchbinder, Sharon Vestal, Tabitha Mingus, and Tuyin An


Geometry for Teachers (GeT) courses provide unique opportunities for undergraduate students to hone their proof-writing skills, take ownership of proving, and make connections to secondary teaching. In this talk, we focus on students’ ability to “derive and explain geometric arguments and proofs” (SLO1) – one of the key student learning objectives (SLOs) of a GeT course. We unpack the dual meaning of proof as a process and as a product, and describe different ways in which instructors of GeT courses can support students’ developing proficiency with proof. We also draw connections to other SLOs.

Registration Open: Closes March 13th

Duration: 60 minutes

Format: Online seminar via Zoom web meeting software with questions and discussion. Detailed instructions for joining the seminar will be emailed to registered participants.
