Geometry – Monday – Full Year – 30 Weeks -Grades 8 – 12
Monday, September 11 2023 @ 11:00AM – Monday, June 24 2024 @ 12:30PM EDT
Day of Week:
NCAA Core Course Status:
This high-school level course provides students with the fundamental vocabulary, language, properties, and procedures of geometry. The emphasis is on developing reasoning skills through the exploration of geometric relationships, which include properties of geometric figures, trigonometric relationships, and geometric proofs. The course includes application of both algebra and geometry skills to solve problems.
During class students can expect to participate in a warm-up activity, have an opportunity to ask questions on the previous homework assignment, and learn new material while completing guided notes. Students are encouraged to actively participate in class using the chat feature. The “I do, we do, you do” approach is used for the instruction of new material. Completion of problems will gradually shift from the instructor modeling how to complete the problems to the student completing problems on their own.
Students will attain and exhibit knowledge of concepts, definitions, properties, and applications of the topics listed in the weekly course schedule as well as develop the computational skills and strategies needed to solve problems. Students will develop logical thinking skills and deductive reasoning through the writing of geometric proofs and the solving of application problems involving geometric figures.
Students must have access to a working printer before each class meeting to print guided notes, homework assignments, study guides, and tests.
Students are expected to participate in class by completing the guided notes, responding to instructor questions, and asking for help when needed. Students are expected to complete homework according to the instructor’s specifications and to the best of their ability. Completed homework must be turned in on time to earn credit. The homework answers and the steps used to find the answer will be provided to students after the time each assignment is due, but before the next class. Students are expected to read and apply instructor feedback on homework, use the provided answers to check their work, and correct errors on their assignments. To LEARN math, one must DO math.
NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
