Compass, Ruler & Protractor: All You Need for Geometry Pt.4+ April- May- June

Each section meets for six days over a two-week period and continues with 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 continually improve their understanding of the theorems of Euclid and geometry as a basic science within mathematics. The following sections will dive into logic and the use of proofs. They will get practice and gain skills they can use for drawing in art or science and technology as well as applying the theorems to practical proofs in mathematics.
Students will gain the skills they’ll need for more advanced studies in geometry and begin to learn the basics of trigonometry. 
Students will also be provided with some tips on how to do a self-assessment so that they can further their math education in confidence.
I have taught math and science from middle school, through high-school college-prep, and tutored at the college level. For the nearly 20 years that I have been teaching, science and mathematics were always my favorite subjects. It was probably because they also related to art and music and the enjoyment of nature, which are pastimes and hobbies of mine!
Homework will consist of a drawing or a short writing or note-taking assignment with an occasional video clip.
Optional: The teacher will suggest fun video clips that demonstrate more applications of geometry using their tools as well as paper, scissors, and tape. 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 on an individual basis.
These are the same materials the students had with them when they started this course in Parts 1 through 3. You will need a notebook with lined or graph paper, a pencil, an eraser, and compass, a ruler, and a protractor. These are available at any office/ school supply store for around $6.00. 
Additional supplies will include typical classroom tools such as scissors, tape, glue, and paper.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assessments are informal. I expect to spend an extra 20 minutes to half an hour conferring with each student via email. I also like to send a brief review of each student's work and a note of appreciation for their contribution to their parent. Learners will build confidence in their ability to evaluate their own progress, identify any weak areas, and assess where they'd like to go next. 
1 hour 30 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 purely optional but can aid in extending and reviewing the subject matter.
No accounts are necessary for watching Youtube videos.
An account is necessary to use the Khan Academy but, it is free and remains optional. Parents can go to 
khanacademy.org/join and then use the class code I will provide. Students can then test their understanding and themselves, stress-free, and self-paced with my feedback as needed.
These are purely optional but can aid in extending and reviewing the subject matter for your learner's enjoyment:

For our section on the two-column proof, we will view some video clips from the Khan Academy such as the video titled,
"Two-column proof showing segments are perpendicular | Congruence | Geometry | Khan Academy" on Youtube.
We will view video clips using the shared screen feature of our Zoom class.
Other sources will be PDF files containing helpful worksheets and self-assessment guides that students can use to further their own math education.
