Introduction. Article is devoted to a research of a role of a school course of geometry in geometrical training of future primary school teachers. Updating of content of education in the direction of satisfaction of modern requirements of society demands training process improvement. The attention to quality of mathematical education of pupils is more and more paid. The problem of ensuring appropriate level of mathematical education is caused by ample opportunities of development of logical and spatial thinking, imagination, algorithmic culture, the culture of justifications of statements, modeling of various processes. In this regard the problem of mathematical training of the modern teacher, especially the elementary school teacher who the first begins training of pupils of mathematics, in particular geometry is relevant. Purpose. Research objective is identification of a role of a school course of geometry in geometrical training of future elementary school teachers. Results. In modern conditions of development of education in Ukraine mathematical training of future elementary school teachers has to be based on a combination of deep assimilation of theoretical knowledge to formation of practical skills of students to apply this knowledge in future professional activity. Despite the seeming simplicity of geometrical material of an initial course of mathematics, students have some difficulties when studying geometry it is aware of mathematics of higher education institutions. It is explained by the fact that the success of geometrical training of future elementary school teachers is based on their knowledge, skills created when studying geometry at comprehensive school. The analysis of tasks of the independent external evaluation on mathematics in recent years demonstrates that the level of their complexity has considerably decreased, especially on geometry. However graduates of schools or don't carry out geometrical tasks in general, or solve only planimetric problems, and only an insignificant part starts the solution of spatial tasks, though not many receive positive result. Originality. It is found out that the school course of geometry is a basis of geometrical training of future elementary school teachers which demands improvement through increase in level of school preparation. Conclusion. One of ways of solutions of the problem of increase in level of school geometrical training of students is generalization and systematization of knowledge of a school course of geometry which is promoted by the developed grant «Geometry in tables».
