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, transformations, area, similarity, triangles, circles, concurrence theorems, and more.
Partially “Flipped” Class
This class is partially “flipped”. That means that we’ll spend our class time on fun, interactive learning… and leave the “talking head” lectures at home via, custom videos that I’ve created for each lesson.
This way you can spend extra time on trickier lessons…and our class time is reclaimed for more community pursuits. 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 : )
