Geometry Module

The Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP) developed the Geometry Module as a comprehensive teacher training module with funding from the Texas Education Agency and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Geometry Module effectively assists teachers in developing a deeper understanding of the underlying concepts that support the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in Geometry and helps teachers develop the pedagogical tools necessary to provide their students the opportunity to meet Texas' challenging state content and student performance standards. The Geometry Module also supports related TExES Mathematics Competencies. The rigor of the Geometry Module is of sufficient nature as to allow participating teachers who have not yet met the requirements of a "highly qualified" teacher, as defined by the United States NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT of 2001 (NCLB), to progress towards this goal.
