Class Description
This class covers traditional high school Geometry. Major concepts and skills covered in this course are as follows:

Describing points, lines, rays, line segments, angles, and planes

Calculating the measure of the interior and exterior angles of a regular polygon

Understanding the geometry of a circle, sphere, and ellipse

Understanding and computing volume and surface area of solids

Using the Pythagorean theorem to identify triangle attributes

Applying postulates, theorems, definitions, and properties to geometric proofs
Additional Concepts and Skills:

Using a protractor to construct angles

Using a compass to construct bisectors

Constructing and identifying triangles

Working with algebraic expressions containing radicals

Completing geometric transformations within a Cartesian plane

Understanding basic trigonometric functions
The weekly class will consist of Lesson/concept presentation, review, homework, quizzes, and enrichment and/or reinforcement opportunities for mastery of lesson objective. There will also be an opportunity for a one hour open tutor session on alternating weeks. This session is optional and will be offered, as a group, on Tuesdays at EMMA. (time TBA) Students will be assigned daily workbook activities. Homework assignments will be graded. Quizzes and testing will be done in class as well as takehome tests. Parents will monitor progress. Homework is paramount to successful completion of this course. Students must show a strong level of competency in previous math courses, and especially in Algebra 1. Due to the subject it’s conceptual scope, student’s must have completed 9th grade. I have found that students are better prepared, cognitively, in the upper high school grades.
