Description

Class Experience

1) Geometric Vocabulary
2) Compass and straight edge constructions
3) Basic formal proofs
4) The practical life skills of calculating area etc.
5) The unique spacial puzzle solving skills developed in Geometry
This will be a homework intensive course, there is no way around it. I'll evaluate the students interactively in class, but the main goal of this class is to create a 3-ring binder full of proofs, notes and illustrations. This portfolio will be your proof of Geometry knowledge that you can show to high schools and universities. I will require that the portfolio be uploaded for review. Putting it in a good looking and presentable form will be an important goal of the course.
Graph paper, a ruler, a protractor, and a (geometry) compass are required. A 3-ring binder to hold all of the notes, problem sets, and drawing will be crucial, since Geometry requires citing previous work. Another requirement is a flexible webcam holder (a "gooseneck stand") and a 2nd webcam that attaches to it. This camera will point down at a student's desk while they work on their problems. It is very hard to teach interactively online when you cannot see the work of one's students in live time, this will make the class substantially better and more efficient.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
Required Textbook: Geometry, Book 1. Planimetry by A.P. Kiselev ($29.90) https://sumizdat.org/geom1.html

Part 2 of Kiselev is a second shorter book that we will use later in the year.

About Me

My goal is to help students make the transition from the arithmetic and memorization stage into the analytical problem solving stage, thereby setting a solid foundation for all further scientific work. Thus, my courses will focus exclusively on:...
