Course Description

See Reviews of Instructor Susan Habacivch

 

In this live online Geometry class, students will learn how to read, understand, and communicate using mathematical language in daily assignments and in several fun and creative projects during the year. They will not only cover the different topics of Geometry, but see the connections between this and previous courses. Material will be presented in many different ways. We will learn problem solving on paper as well as use technology to prepare students for future work in college and beyond. Students will learn to write proofs after a carefully sequenced development of the conceptual precursors to proof.

This course covers all the main concepts required for a high school credit in Geometry. Topics include:

  • Points, lines, and angles
  • Congruence Transformations
  • Polygons and Symmetry
  • Similar and Congruent Triangles
  • Length, area, surface area, and volume
  • Proofs
  • Segments and angles in circles

Course Structure

Students can expect to spend at least 1 hour a day on this class. This accounts for watching pre-recorded videos, reading daily assignments and completing daily homework, and submitting handwritten weekly assignments. The submitted homework will consist of video concept check questions, daily readings and note-taking, electronic concept questions, and textbook questions, some submitted as scanned written work, and some to be checked against an answer key that will be provided.

In addition, there will be two required projects (one each semester), handwritten and scanned chapter tests, and two cumulative multiple-choice exams. To help students learn good note-taking, notes from each chapter will be submitted and evaluated. Each week, students are required to submit questions that will be addressed in our live sessions. These weekly live sessions will be used to review, practice problem-solving, and answer submitted questions. All course lectures are pre-recorded and available for students to play back at their convenience.

Weekly live problem-solving and discussion sessions will be held where we work together on concepts and applications of concepts. Questions are welcomed! Students are not required to “meet” at the scheduled discussion time, but it is encouraged. Scheduled discussion times will be recorded for those unable to attend the live discussion times and available for approximately one month afterward.

Who should enroll?

Students in grades 9-11 who have successfully completed Algebra I and have instructor approval may enroll. They must complete an application and be approved before registering. The well-prepared applicant will have completed a basic algebra course and is familiar with those fundamental concepts. They should have the maturity to diligently complete the assigned homework and seek additional help when needed. Learning how to learn mathematics is stressed in this course, so students who are motivated to improve are welcome to apply.

Technology Requirements

  • High speed, broadband Internet
  • Web cam, sound card, and microphone (for live sessions)
  • Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures
  • Scanner or smart phone for submitting tests and homework

Evaluation and Feedback

Students will be graded on homework, projects, notes, tests, and exams. Submitted student work will be graded and returned within one week of the due dates. Outside of class times, students may contact the teacher with any questions or concerns using the Canvas messages.

Communication

Grades are perpetually available throughout the course and parents may contact me through Canvas messages on the course website. Parent-teacher conferences will be offered in the fall and spring of the year.

    I highly recommend Mrs. Habacivch’s geometry class as it provides a thorough understanding of the subject. It definitely challenged my eighth-grader, but I doubt we could have found a better instructor. Mrs. H. was always responsive and helpful whenever my child had questions. Moreover, I greatly appreciated the parent conferences we had each semester.

  2. Gina E (verified owner)

    My daughter enjoyed taking Geometry with Mrs. Habacivch. I appreciate that Mrs. Habacivch answers emails from students and parents promptly. She is patient and caring. Her classes are very interactive and the textbook she uses explains each concept clearly. It would be great if the quizzes didn’t have errors, other than that I think this is a great class.

  3. Sofia

    I really like the textbook; I love how it proves everything instead of simply saying that something is the way it is just because, like many textbooks do. I have learned a lot from this class, and I enjoy the live lessons as often my questions are answered. Though I do feel that the homework load is relatively a bit heavy, it is not excessive, and it is doable and helpful. The only thing is that sometimes the quizzes have errors in them, so I have to contact Mrs. Habacivch about them, but there are not too many errors, and other than that I have really enjoyed this class. I feel like the general structure of this class; with the great textbook, helpful live lesson, and various assignments; allows for students to truly understand the material and retain it.

  4. Safiyah

    I took this Geometry course in my sophomore year of high school and would highly recommend it to anyone. Mrs. Susan Habacivch is a very kind, patient, and informative teacher. She definitely helped me with becoming more disciplined with my schedule and submission of assignments. She is great at explaining the concepts and breaking down the information. Her live classes were interactive and cleared up any questions i had regarding the topics. It does not take Mrs. H long to respond to messages in canvas which I found very helpful. This Geometry course was great and I truly enjoyed the class with Mrs. H
