A Compass, Ruler, & Protractor: All You Need for Geometry! Cohort Delta

Each section meets for six days over a two-week period and introduces Euclid's geometry while drawing and playing with the tools of a ruler, compass, and protractor. We'll discover math as we create drawings of geometric shapes.

Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the theorems of Euclid and geometry as a basic science within mathematics. They will get practice and gain skills they can use for drawing and design in the arts or sciences.

I have taught math and science from middle school, through high-school college-prep, and tutored at the college level. For the 15+ years, I've taught at charter and private schools in Arizona, geometry, and trigonometry were my favorite subjects to teach. It was probably because they also related to art and music and the observation of patterns in nature, which are pastimes and hobbies of mine!
Homework will consist of a drawing assignment, a short writing or note-taking assignment, and/or viewing a video clip that we can discuss later.
Optional: The teacher will suggest fun video clips that demonstrate more applications of geometry. Students can then share their work or discoveries in the following class! 
Homework will take between 15 minutes to an hour to complete and will be evaluated informally with feedback and praise from the teacher. 
A notebook with lined or graph paper, a pencil, an eraser, a compass, a ruler, and a protractor. I have found that a simple math kit at Target or any office/ school supply costs about $6.00.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assessments are informal and friendly. I expect to spend an extra 20 to 30 minutes conferring with each student via email if they choose not to share in class. In my experience, most students feel free to voluntarily show their work because I create a supportive classroom culture that encourages and even welcomes, "mistakes".
2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I can refer students to video clips (Youtube) that may interest your learners and we can comment upon them in subsequent class meetings. These are optional but can really aid in extending and reviewing the subject matter.
No accounts are necessary for watching Youtube videos.
