An exploration of two and three dimensional figures
minimum 8, maximum 16
Optional Zoom session,
Pre-requisites for class:
1 math credit
The objective of this course is to empower and equip students with the confidence and knowledge they will need to succeed in their future educational endeavors. A brief sampling of topics covered in the course is listed below.
Geometry Foundations and Logic
Students will start the year learning the building blocks of Geometry and how to defend the answers they discover. They will learn how to use inductive reasoning and how to create quality definitions by searching for counter-examples.
Shapes and Their Structure
In elementary school, geometry focuses on identifying shapes and their properties. In this high school course, your student will obtain more knowledge of two and three-dimensional figures. They will also explore the many uses of Geometry in real-world scenarios ranging from complex problems such as surface area and volume to how they can measure tall objects from the ground. (Trigonometry is really COOL!)
Classwork / Homework
Class work will include guided note-taking, traditional problem solving, critical thinking activities, and applied projects. Students will spend approximately 3-4 hours per week on homework assignments.
