This seven-week Intensive Geometry course will review all major geometry topics as well as strengthen the skills for students who have previously taken a Geometry course. For students who have not yet taken a full year of geometry, this is a basic course to enable you to improve performance in future math courses including Geometry, Algebra II and Pre-Calculus.
Week 1: Lines and Angles Week 2: Right Triangles Week 3: Congruence and Similarity Week 4: Other Similarity and Transformations Week 5: Quadrilaterals and Circles Week 6: Surface Areas and Volumes Week 7: Additional Topics and Review
Students will build confidence by in-class practice and refresh their comprehension of topics by watching video tutorials and maintaining a comprehensive, guided, theorem note sheet. Instruction will be provided in pre-recorded videos and weekly live problem-solving sessions. Grades will be based on in-class practice, homework worksheets, automated quizzes and open-ended scanned tests. No book is required for this course; all worksheets, activities and solutions will be provided by the teacher. A scientific calculator is required.
Course Structure: Students will build confidence by in-class practice and refresh their comprehension of topics by watching video tutorials provided in pre-recorded videos followed by weekly live problem-solving sessions.
Who should enroll: Students should be 9th grade or above. The well-prepared applicant is familiar with the fundamentals of algebra and has 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 should apply.
Technical needs: To access course materials students will need broadband, high speed Internet and their own e-mail account. This course will be run on the learning platform called Canvas. Canvas is a user-friendly, powerful platform where parents can be linked to their students and access student material, see grades, and contact the instructor at any time. Weekly assignments are downloaded as PDF files from the website or taken in electronic quiz form. A scanner is required so that students can scan their completed work and upload it to the website for grading. A sound card and microphone (for live sessions) and streaming video capabilities are needed as well.
Feedback and Evaluation: Grades will be based on in-class practice, homework worksheets, automated quizzes and open-ended handwritten and scanned tests. Daily homework is required, followed by longer, weekly homework assignments and tests. The instructor will grade assignments within a week of the due date.
Communication: All course communication will be conducted through the course platform, Canvas. Questions about the course are welcome by email to the instructor, Susan Habacivch by email at .
