At fifteen, Terry Flynn had the face of an angel and the body of a perfect athlete... Set in a small boarding school on the eve of America's entry into World War Two, A Good School tells the story of William Grove, the nervous teenager trying to fit in; the betrayed alcoholic, Jack Draper; and Edith Stone, the teacher's daughter, who falls in love with the most popular boy in school.

What role might geometry play in the mathematical education of adolescents during the next century, and how might teachers and researchers contribute to explore those opportunities and challenges?
The Teaching and Learning of Geometry provides an initial consideration of these questions and a primer for teachers and young scholars to get involved in addressing them. Geometry has long been a mainstay of the secondary school curriculum internationally, charged with the responsibility of introducing students to the practices of theoretical mathematics. This book provides a pedagogical framework for the teaching and learning of geometry grounded in theory and research. It can support teacher preparation and professional development, and orient classroom research by teachers and development efforts directed to teachers.
Areas covered include:-
Curriculum developers can use this book as a resource for textbook writing, and teacher developers can use this book as a resource for inservice and preservice teacher education course development. Graduate students and teacher-researchers will find in this book both a framework to orient them to the research literature and a guide for short-term classroom research projects.
IMPACT (Interweaving Mathematics Pedagogy and Content for Teaching) is an exciting new series of advanced textbooks for teacher education which aims to advance the teaching of maths by integrating mathematics content teaching with the broader research and theoretical base of mathematics education.
