The Van Hiele levels of geometric reasoning attained by students and teachers were explored. For students, a sample of 1240 sixth, eighth, and tenth graders was studied. A random sample of 191 male and female mathematics teachers from the West Bank was selected. Results indicated low levels of geometric reasoning among students, as one third of them could not achieve the lowest Van Hiele level. About 18% of the Palestinian mathematics teachers are at the first level or below, of Van Hiele model, and 57% of the teachers did not achieve the formal deductive level.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11889/6747|
