Free Geometry Resource

By Katherine Loop | Biblical Math Blog

Cornerstone Curriculum, publishers of the Making Math Meaningful curriculum series, is offering a rough draft of the first several hundred pages of their geometry course for free online. Based on a quick look at the course, it seemed to present geometry as a useful tool. I have looked at some of the author’s other resources and know he strives to help students really understand the concepts he presents and not merely memorize formulas.

Here’s a quote from one of the opening pages:

Geometry is all about measuring lines, angles, surfaces, solids, velocities and their interrelationships. In this study, you will act as a consultant, designer-planner, and builder. The projects will range from designing a tree fort in your back yard to planning the construction of a sidewalk and home on the hilly streets of San Francisco to charting the path of the earth around the sun. In the process you will learn the principles as well as the vast usage of geometry in everyday life. Geometry is used by graphic animators, artists, photographers, interior designers, engineers, architects, builders, construction teams, surveyors and doctors just to name a few.

The draft copy online does not contain answers to the problems, nor is it an entire course, but you could certainly use some of the application ideas or concept presentations from the free download. If you do, I’d love to hear how you liked it–as I’m sure would the author.

I would like to see how geometry could be taught in a meaningful way and practical aspects to the children…

Thank you for the suggestion! I’ll keep it in mind for future posts. What age children are you specifically interested in teaching it to? Also, you may want to check out the geometry posts online now: http://www.christianperspective.net/blog/?cat=16
