- The material focuses directly on the mathematics relevant to elementary teachers.
- The focus is always on mathematics; this is not a "teaching methods'' course.
- The text is divided into short sections, each with a homework set, of a size appropriate for a single class session.
- Prospective teachers are asked to write “Teacher's Solutions” to problems and to write “Elementary Proofs”. These are special ways of presenting specific geometry content to elementary and middle school students that are standard in some of the world's most highly-regarded curricula. The emphasis is on building and perfecting skill at writing clear, concise solutions.
