This class was tough.
This course is challenging, but worth the challenge. I felt far more prepared to teach math, even though this isn't a "how to teach math" course. Dr. Chamberlin is truly an amazing teacher. She delves deep and requires that you do too. If you put in the work, you'll come out of this course with a deeper understanding of geometry and how it relates to teaching.
Understanding volume and area measurements and how they work, working with transformations, estimating measurements, learning about various teaching methodologies (plan for measurement instruction, Van Hiele), 2-D and 3-D shapes and their properties, 2-D and 3-D shape hierarchies

Advice for students:
Be organized! Get a notebook and section it into class notes, in-class activities, homework, and quizzes. Do the homework! Even though she provides the answers, the homework will help you do well on the test.
