This course provides a comprehensive, hand-on approach to geometry. The main topics of instruction include the following: computing perimeter, area, surface area, and volume of various geometric shapes and 3 dimensional solids, determining the types and measures of angles, using the Pythagorean theorem, learning definitions, postulates, theorems and how to apply them in geometric proofs, constructing and bisecting line segments and angles, identifying and constructing geometric transformations, shortcuts when working with special right triangles, working with algebraic equations using radicals, using a protractor and compass, and more. Tests will primarily be taken at home to allow more time for instruction and review during class time. In order to have the best class experience, there will be a 3-student minimum for the class to be conducted.
