This book is written to assist the new as well as members who have been around for some time in the Ancient Craft “Blue Lodge”, who have not yet fully understood the general structure of Masonry or the basic working of the Lodge. Its objective is to provide the reader with General Usages, History of Masonry, Masonic LandMarks of the Craft, Masonic Jurisprudence, Organizational Structure and General Administrative Procedures, just to name a few. I hope that all may find it a useful tool in the pursuit for Masonic Knowledge and I encourage your further development of a better understanding of the workings of the Craft, that you become motivated to continue your exploits for “More Light”.
Geometry remains an essential and critical topic in school mathematics. As they learn geometry, students develop essential mathematical thinking and visualization skills and learn a language that helps them relate to and interact with the physical world. Geometry has traditionally been included as a subject of study in secondary mathematics curricula, but it has also featured as a resource in out-of-school problem solving, and has been connected to various human activities such as sports, games, and artwork. Furthermore, geometry often plays a role in teacher preparation, undergraduate mathematics, and at the workplace. New technologies, including dynamic geometry software, computer-assisted design software, and geometric positioning systems, have provided more resources for teachers to design environments and tasks in which students can learn and use geometry. In this context, research on the teaching and learning of geometry will continue to be a key element on the research agendas of mathematics educators, as researchers continue to look for ways to enhance student learning and to understand student thinking and teachers’ decision making.
