Jumpstart Geometry will benefit learners who plan to take Geometry in the fall, learners who have finished Algebra I, or learners who are currently struggling with the basics of Geometry. Whether your learner is just beginning Geometry or just needs a refresher, future success depends on fully understanding the basics. This course covers the basics of Geometry. The students will learn to: Identify, name, and draw points, lines, segments, rays, and planes. Apply basic facts about points,...
Identify, name, and draw points, lines, segments, rays, and planes. Apply basic facts about points, lines, and planes. Find length and midpoint of a segment. Use the Segment Addition Postulate. Define and apply concepts of congruent, midpoint, and bisects. Name, classify, and measure angles. Find angle measures using the Angle Addition Postulate. Find angle measures using the Definition of Angle Bisector. Identify adjacent, vertical, complementary, supplementary and linear pairs of angles. Find the measures of pairs of angles using arithmetic and algebraic methods. Calculate or find expressions for the perimeter and area of rectangles, squares, and triangles. Calculate or find the expressions for circumference and area of a circle. Solve problems involving area and perimeter using algebraic methods. Develop and apply the formula to find the midpoint between two points in the coordinate plane. Use the distance formula to find the distance between two points. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points.
I have successfully taught students Geometry for over twenty years in a variety of school settings. I've worked with students who have learning challenges and high-achieving students, and many students in between. I bring these experiences to the classroom. I know which content can be challenging, and have developed a variety of ways to help learners succeed.
Practice problems will be assigned after each session.
Learners will need access to a printer.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I can provide an optional assessment at the end of the course.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
