9th - 12th Grades

Description:

Geometry (which is based on Euclid's elements) is a one-year course and it reviews the geometric concepts of previous math courses, and in addition, it encourages and guides the student in the discovery of new geometric concepts. Geometry stresses the ability to reason logically and to think critically. A major part of the course will be devoted to teaching the student how to present a formal proof. There is strong focus on proving theorems and results from basic postulates. Euclidean & non-Euclidean Geometry include. The student should plan to be responsible for completing 4 to 6 hours of homework assignments outside of class each week. Due to time constraints most test will be take home.

Instructor Biography

Hello, Welcome.  I am the Science and Math group tutor at Inspire.  I teach high school math and sciences, and I love it.  I joke that "Algebra is my Love Language" and "Physics is my Passion".  This is my 4th year with Inspire and my 8th year tutoring.  I am a former Process Engineer from Silicon Valley, where I worked in the semiconductor industry with the machines that made computer chips.  I have a Bachelors degree in Math and Physics from Humboldt State University and Over 20 years of engineering experience.  I want to inspire the next generation in math, science and engineering.  I am here to bridge the gap for home school students and educate the future.  I look forward to having the opportunity to teach math and sciences to your students.  Write or call me at (530)613-2720 or CindyVoigt.ILA@gmail.com.
