This book is the perfect way to understand how adding one side at a time creates new shapes. However, much of the geometry presented in elementary classrooms today, if presented at all, focuses mainly on identification of basic shapes. Geometric problem solving, connections to other areas of mathematics, and exploration of geometric concepts and principles, receive scant attention.

Mathematics educators are working for major. reforms. In contemporary education, mathematics education is the practice of teaching and learning mathematics, along with the associated scholarly research.
