Van Hiele: Levels of Geometric Thinking
  • Precognition
  • Level 0: Visualization/Recognition
  • Level 1: Analysis/Descriptive
  • Level 2: Informal Deduction
  • Level 3:Deduction
  • Level 4: Rigor

visualization or recognition
Visualization or Recognition
  • The student identifies, names compares and operates on geometric figures according to their appearance
  • For example, the student recognizes rectangles by its form but, a rectangle seems different to her/him then a square.
  • At this level rhombus is not recognized as a parallelogram

Van Hiele: Levels of Geometric Thinking
  • Precognition
  • Level 0: Visualization/Recognition
  • Level 1: Analysis/Descriptive
  • Level 2: Informal Deduction
  • Level 3:Deduction
  • Level 4: Rigor

Mara Alagic

analysis descriptive
Analysis/Descriptive
  • The student analyzes figures in terms of their components and relationships between components and discovers properties/rules of a class of shapes empirically by
        • folding
        • measuring
        • using a grid or diagram, ...
  • He/she is not yet capable of differentiating these properties into definitions and propositions
  • Logical relations are not yet fit-study object

Mara Alagic

analysis descriptive an example
Analysis/Descriptive: An Example

If a student knows that the

  • diagonals of a rhomb are perpendicular,

she must be able to conclude that,

  • if two equal circles have two points in common, the segment joining these two points is perpendicular to the segment joining centers of the circles.

Van Hiele: Levels of Geometric Thinking
  • Precognition
  • Level 0: Visualization/Recognition
  • Level 1: Analysis/Descriptive
  • Level 2: Informal Deduction
  • Level 3:Deduction
  • Level 4: Rigor

Mara Alagic

informal deduction
Informal Deduction
  • The student logically interrelates previously discovered properties/rules by giving or following informal arguments
  • The intrinsic meaning of deduction is not understood by the student
  • The properties are ordered - deduced from one another

Mara Alagic

informal deduction examples
Informal Deduction: Examples
  • A square is a rectangle because it has all the properties of a rectangle.
  • The student can conclude the equality of angles from the parallelism of lines: In a quadrilateral, opposite sides being parallel necessitates opposite angles being equal

Van Hiele: Levels of Geometric Thinking
  • Precognition
  • Level 0: Visualization/Recognition
  • Level 1: Analysis/Descriptive
  • Level 2: Informal Deduction
  • Level 3:Deduction
  • Level 4: Rigor

Mara Alagic

deduction 1
Deduction (1)
  • The student proves theorems deductively and establishes interrelationships among networks of theorems in the Euclidean geometry
  • Thinking is concerned with the meaning of deduction, with the converse of a theorem, with axioms, and with necessary and sufficient conditions

Mara Alagic

deduction 2
Deduction (2)
  • Student seeks to prove facts inductively
  • It would be possible to develop an axiomatic system of geometry, but the axiomatics themselves belong to the next (fourth) level

Van Hiele: Levels of Geometric Thinking
  • Precognition
  • Level 0: Visualization/Recognition
  • Level 1: Analysis/Descriptive
  • Level 2: Informal Deduction
  • Level 3:Deduction
  • Level 4: Rigor

Mara Alagic

rigor
Rigor
  • The student establishes theorems in different postulational systems and analyzes/compares these systems
  • Figures are defined only by symbols bound by relations
  • A comparative study of the various deductive systems can be accomplished
  • The student has acquired a scientific insight into geometry

Mara Alagic

the levels are characterized by differences in objects of thought
The levels are “characterized by differences in objects of thought”:
  • geometric figures
  • classes of figures & properties of these classes
  • students act upon properties, yielding logical orderings of these properties
  • operating on these ordering relations
  • foundations (axiomatic) of ordering relations

Mara Alagic

major characteristics of the levels
Major Characteristics of the Levels
  • the levels are sequential
  • each level has its own language, set of symbols, and network of relations
  • what is implicit at one level becomes explicit at the next level
  • material taught to students above their level is subject to reduction of level
  • progress from one level to the next is more dependant on instructional experience than on age or maturation
  • one goes through various “phases” in proceeding from one level to the next
