This is a summer course that emphasizes the relationships among geometric figures and concepts. Specifically, students will explore basic figures (points, lines, and planes), parallel lines, congruence, similarity, polygons, coordinate geometry, area, volume, circles, and right triangle trigonometry. Students will apply logical thinking throughout the course, without an emphasis on formal proofs. There will be an emphasis on solving real world applications using these concepts throughout the course.
Please note that this course is an abbreviated course which lasts 8 weeks. Therefore, the course does not cover a full year’s curriculum with the same depth that is covered in a year-long course. Students are expected to work approximately 8-10 hours per week. In addition, if the student is taking this course for credit recovery or initial credit, it is strongly advised that you check with the student's school to confirm that the topics covered (see course syllabus) match those required by the school. You may also want to confirm with the school the process for receiving credits, which may involve an assessment administered separately by the school.
Students will be able to:
Use logical reasoning to identify and apply geometric properties
Learn to communicate clearly and effectively
Apply geometric concepts to real world applications
Apply algebraic concepts in geometric topics
Students will be required to download Geogebra, a free geometry software application used for constructions and investigations.
