#### 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.

Topic include: lines, angles, direct and indirect proofs, congruence, inequalities, parallel lines, quadrilaterals, transformations, area, similarity, triangles, circles, concurrence theorems, and more. 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.

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!

We will dig in to new topics in class, but I’ll also provide direct instruction in brief, 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.

You are responsible for reading, taking notes, and studying each lesson and its vocabulary. You are responsible for all of the lesson content that is contained within these “flipped videos”.

#### Grade Level:

10-12

#### Geometry Class Prerequisite(s):

Completion of Algebra 1

#### Geometry Course Curriculum:

Geometry: Seeing, Doing, Understanding (Third Edition) by Harold Jacobs [ISBN 9781683440208] and “Answers to Exercises for Geometry” [ISBN 9781683440215]

**Please note:** I’ve chosen the “Honeybee” third edition of Jacobs Geometry. It is virtually the same as the pink “Math Tools” printing of the third edition; Master Books has simply removed a few “references to smoking, drinking, Martians, clairvoyance” et cetera. If you already own the pink “Math Tools” version (ISBN 9781619991095) and Answers (ISBN 9781619991163), they’ll probably work fine.

#### Required Equipment:

A scientific (or graphing) calculator, protractor, and sturdy compass

#### Input = Output

You know those classes where you just show up, and the teacher pours information into your brain? This is not that class!

I will do everything in my power to make your learning easier – from automated quizzes to review games and interactive feedback.

You, however, will need to step up… and keep up with your work load. If you come to class prepared, you’ll get much more out of it!

**Be present** ~ attend class (or watch the recording)

**Be diligent** ~ work hard, don’t just check boxes

**Be active** ~ log in regularly, and participate fully

**Be clear** ~ communicate regularly with your classmates, your parents, and your instructor

#### Geometry Class Review:

I have enjoyed taking your class. . . Who would have thought that anyone would look forward to a math class? I’ve loved play Madlibs and Kahoot during class, as your way to “wake us up.” . . . You gave us lots of resources so that we could fully understand the concepts you were teaching us. You always made me fully understand and didn’t leave questions unanswered. . . . You have shown me different, and easier methods of doing the same thin, like using the Pythagorean Theorem instead of the distance formula. . . . You have made Geometry fun and easy for us all, by giving us fun things to study with, fun things during (class), and most of all, your positive outlook on such a hard subject.
