However, Burger & Shaughnessy (1986) argue that improper and imprecise language can hinder students learning in geometry. This is supported by van Hiele-Geldof (1984) who stated that if teachers use mathematically terminology too soon without everyday references then students learn the terminology without the associated mathematical…

Over lunch one day, Lee Blocker told Bill about some land outside of Elgin that he wanted to develop. Nancy Lou and Bill drove to Elgin with their three children and were greeted by a downtown with all the first story windows broken out and boarded up, and many of the second story windows were broken with pigeons roosting in them.
