The Main Challenges that a Teacher-in-Transition Faces When Teaching a High School Geometry Class The Main Challenges that a Teacher-in-Transition Faces When Teaching a High School Geometry Class

by Henry, Greg Brough

Abstract (Summary)
During a semester-long action research study, the author attempted to implement a standards-based approach to teaching mathematics in a high school geometry class. Having previously taught according to a more traditional manner, there were many challenges involved as he made this transition. Some of the challenges were related to Geometry and others were related to the standards-based approach in general. The main challenges that the author encountered are identified and discussed. A plan of action for possible solutions to these challenges is then described.
