  • Course Description

The objective of this course is to empower and equip students to master and apply the skills taught in Algebra 1 in order to have the confidence and knowledge needed to succeed in Algebra 2. 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.
