This course is a complete and in-depth high school level geometry course, and is designed to emphasize the study of the properties and applications of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions. Geometry stresses the ability to reason logically and to think critically. Throughout this course students will use their algebraic knowledge, inductive and deductive thinking skills to complete formal two column proofs applying mathematical arguments and problem solving techniques. In addition, students will study and apply theorems and postulates, transformations and right triangle trigonometry, and learn to sketch geometric constructions utilizing basic drawing tools. This course will promote analytical thinking while building a foundation which will encourage students to delve deeper into subsequent math and science courses. Topics include dimensional objects (lines, planes, polygons, circles, and polyhedrons), angular measurement, congruency, similarity, deductive and inductive reasoning, formal proofs, relational computations (perimeter, area, and volume), right triangle trigonometry, and practical applications. Algebraic concepts and techniques are integrated and emphasized throughout the course to aid in the understanding of geometric concepts and applications, and to reinforce proficiency in algebraic skills

Have you ever wondered when you are actually going to use algebra in real life? In this course, students will discover how to find and manipulate math in the world around them. We focus on learning how to identify variables and set up algebraic expressions of increasing complexity. We’ll find mysteries that use linear, quadratic, exponential, and trigonometric functions. Our numerical mysteries will come from physical science, current events, and student-selected topics. Because of the different kinds of functions, we will be exploring, students should have a solid grasp on Algebra 1 content before taking this course. Younger mathematically gifted students are welcome to take this course. Due to the nature of this course, it is hosted on the Zoom platform. The instructor will email you before the start of the course about downloading the free software, so students can join the meeting. Just as all other classes at OTA, you will be provided a link in Canvas that directs students to the meeting. After each meeting is finished, the instructor will post a link to the class recording.
