9th - 12th Grades

Description:

* Please see Prerequisite Tab
 
* This class will meet for 90 minutes (5th and 6th periods!) on both Tuesdays & Thursdays, for a total of 3 hours instruction each week.
 
This rigorous Geometry course covers the standard concepts of Euclidean geometry with an emphasis on the logical development of content through proof, both direct and indirect. Content areas include congruence, similarity, and other relationships of lines, angles, polygons, circles, and various types of solids. In addition, the course incorporates practical application of postulates and theorems to include measurement and calculations. The course integrates constructions, transformations, coordinate geometry, formulas, an introduction to trigonometry, and a brief look at non-Euclidean geometries into the course of study. 
 

?Students should expect an average of 3+ hours of math work at home each week. Parents are responsible for correcting their student's work after each lesson (critical, because lessons are cumulative, and so students can bring questions to class), and instructor will check for completeness.

Due to time constraints some tests may be taken at home. 


Student assignments and grades will be posted on Schoology. Parents will have access to their student's account and are expected to help their student keep track of assignments and grades through the Schoology platform. 

 

 

Prerequisite:

Completion of Algebra 1 with "B" or better, or successful completion of the Geometry Placement Test. Please contact instructor to arrange for
