While classes began the week of August 17th, I understand that parents may be making last minute decisions and/or alterations to their students’ educational plans. If you would like to enroll in this class later in the year, please contact me to discuss your student’s individual situation.
Geometry Course Overview
This mastery-based Geometry class integrates discussions, cartoons, anecdotes, examples, and plenty of exercises. With a greater emphasis on problems, rather than long introductory instructions, this is a great text for learning-through-doing.
This is a rigorous and challenging course. . . but worth it! Students will be challenged to reason mathematically and apply that reasoning to a wide range of real-world problems. This focus on mastery builds a solid foundation for future math, science, and engineering classes.
Topics include lines, angles, direct and indirect proofs, congruence, inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, area, similarity, triangles, circles, concurrence theorems, and more.
We will spend our class time on fun, interactive learning and leave the “talking head” lectures at home! We will dig in to new topics in class, with direct instruction, demonstration, and activities. I will also provide topic-specific resource videos for each lesson. This makes it easy for students to review. . . . or even just get a quick difference of perspective. This is not a class where I’ll be pouring the learning into your brain each week. You’ll need to study, engage with the material, and be willing to ask some big questions : )
