# Algebraic Modeling and Measurement in Geometry for K-8 teachers

The course focuses on algebraic reasoning and measurement in geometry from a teacher's perspective and is based on the philosophy that mathematical ideas are learned only through active involvement; lecturing is therefore reduced to a minimum and teaching methodology rests on small group activities, presentations and whole class discussions.
