Geometry

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Simply put, Geometry is the study of the size, shape and position of two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures. In this course, students will study basic geometric figures and facts using correct reasoning in proofs to prepare for further work in mathematics and science. In studying Geometry, students will develop foundational skills which help them to build the thinking skills of logic, deductive reasoning, analytical reasoning, and problem solving.


CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS:

  • Arrive to class before the bell rings
  • Do your best work, using the whole class period to complete your work
  • Connect with the material
  • Use considerate language and communicate appropriately
  • Bring necessary materials

How to Study Mathematics


Math is Not a Spectator Sport

You cannot learn mathematics by just going to class and watching the instructor lecture and work problems. In order to learn mathematics you must be actively involved in the learning process. You’ve got to attend class and pay attention while in class. You’ve got to take a good set of notes. You’ve got to work homework problems, even if the instructor doesn’t assign any. You’ve got to study on a regular schedule, not just the night before exams. In other words you need to be involved in the learning process.


The reality is that most people really need to work to pass a math class, and in general they need to work harder at math classes than they do with their other classes. If all that you’re willing to do is spend a couple of hours studying before each exam then you will find that passing most math classes will be very difficult.


If you aren’t willing to be actively involved in the process of learning mathematics, both inside and outside of the class room, then you will have trouble passing any math class.
