# Geometry for K-8 Mathematics Teachers

The course focuses on Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries 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.
