This course covers all topics in a thorough high school Geometry class including logic, reasoning, and proofs; parallel and perpendicular lines; properties of angles and triangles; congruence, similarity, and proportion; quadrilaterals and other polygons; circles; area, surface area, and volume; right triangles and beginning trigonometry; coordinate graphing and transformations. Students become very familiar with numerous postulates and theorems and learn how to apply these in working problems and constructing proofs.
This course includes 2 hours per week of live instruction and uses a dynamic software product, giving students the benefit of the best instructional technology while also having access to a real instructor. As students work on homework assignments, they find out right away if their answer is correct. As needed, they can access immediate help in various forms including being guided through a problem, viewing the steps of a similar problem, or watching a short video clip reviewing the relevant concept. They can also contact the instructor with comments or questions. Students complete quizzes and tests online and submit their written work to the instructor. Assignments, due dates, and grades are easily available for students and parents to view. This software product is currently used in middle schools, high schools, and nearly every college in America.
