Geometry Honors

Course ID: 3279

Note: This course will be face to face only. Streaming this course online will NOT be an option. The main goal of Geometry is to develop an understanding of what we call Euclidean geometric structures and apply the resulting theorems and formulas to address meaningful problems. This course will develop the students' reasoning skills as well as their ability to use logic to prove theorems and justify conclusions. Students will extend their knowledge of algebra and geometry to trigonometry. The course uses algebra to reinforce
geometric concepts, definitions, postulates and theorems. Students will cover topics such as congruency and similarity of triangles; quadrilaterals, parallel lines, circles, area and volume of solids, and right triangle trigonometry, area and volume of solids. Proofs will be included but not overwhelmingly. This class is a high school honors credited course and average students should expect to spend about 8 - 9 hours a week outside of the class to complete all assignments and study for their tests. Students are not allowed to use notes or any other help, other than their own calculator, on their quizzes and tests. Again, this estimate
of 8 - 9 hours of outside classroom work is based on an average. If a student does not stay focused, or if a student is missing any pre-requisite knowledge necessary for this course, they may spend more time than 9 hours a week. Conversely, if a student is gifted mathematically, they may spend less than 8 hours a week of outside classroom time on assignments and studying.

Please note: A parent or caregiver MUST proctor all tests taken at home. All tests must be signed by the parent or caregiver, to signify this supervision occurred. Again, the student must only have access to their
calculator and NO technological device capable of internet connection can be accessible.

Information regarding where to send this test will be coming shortly. Thank you for your patience.

*Math Lab Tutoring will be available Thursdays from 9:30am -12:30 pm in the RCF Math Lab.* All CEDAR policies apply. RSVP by email 24 hours in advance. Cost: $15.00 per student per Thursday. One-on-one tutoring is also available by request through the teacher
