Geometry

Summer Geometry

Type: summer Available to: Students who successfully complete Algebra or Algebra Honors with an overall grade of B+ or better have the opportunity to take Summer Geometry. With successful completion of the course students will move to Intermediate Algebra, Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry / Precalculus (AATP), or Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry / Precalculus Honors (AATP Honors). Format The summer Geometry course offers rising grade 9 and grade 10 students the opportunity to fulfill the Geometry requirement and allows them to accelerate their math path. The online class takes place asynchronously, with four scheduled Zoom office hours per week. Students will be required to check into office hours via Zoom at least two times per week, and all course work must be completed during the five week period. The class will only run if 10 or more students enroll, and will be capped at 25 students. More information

Geometry Honors

Type: honors Available qualified students, see placement requirements link on the Math Department page This course is the second in the honors sequence for highly motivated and skilled students. In addition to reviewing previously studied topics covered in Algebra Honors, students will continue to have their knowledge enhanced with problem sets that focus on practical application and real-life examples. The problem sets are designed to provide a challenge for even the strongest students and to prepare students for participation in optional math contests. Students move through fundamental concepts and the new topics at a brisk pace by spending less time on general practice, and more time engaging with more challenging problems. Students in Geometry Honors usually continue on to take Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry / Precalculus Honors (AATP Honors). For specific topics covered, see course description for Geometry.

Geometry

Available to: qualified students, see placement requirements link on the Math Department page In this comprehensive geometry course, students develop spatial and deductive reasoning skills through an exploration of 2D and 3D shapes, congruent and similar figures, formal geometric vocabulary, basic structuring of mathematical proofs, and trigonometric identities. All geometric topics are discussed with a connection to the coordinate plane with an emphasis on strengthening students’ algebraic skills. In preparation for future courses, students will be introduced to concepts such as logarithmic and exponential functions, polynomials, and imaginary numbers. Students learn in collaboration with their peers and have ample opportunity for hands-on practice and feedback. In addition to a rigorous study of Euclidean Geometry, they spend time doing constructions in Geogebra to strengthen their understanding of geometry through real-life applications. Students in Geometry usually continue on to take Precalculus.

Geometry A

Available to: qualified students, see placement requirements link on the Math Department page In this course students continue to strengthen their understanding of the fundamentals of elementary algebra with an intensive review of algebraic topics before beginning their formal study of geometry. Students learn in a supportive environment that enables them to learn at an appropriate instructional pace. The skills developed in this course help to prepare students for courses in advanced algebra. Students in Geometry A are usually placed into Intermediate Algebra or Advanced Algebra / Trigonometry / Precalculus (AATP).
