This course emphasizes traditional geometry topics such as lines, angles, polygons and circles. Students explore concepts directly through their own inquiry-based exploration, make and test conjectures about what they observe and apply these conjectures to solve problems. In addition to the discovery of geometric relationships, students’ investigations also develop cooperative learning and problem-solving skills.
Students will be asked to complete some amount of independent study outside of the class sessions in order to use class time for exploration. A typical class session may include group explorations, presentations of new material, individual and small-group practice and/or assessments. A passing grade on a final, end-of-course exam is required to earn high school credit. Students completing this course are prepared for Algebra II.
Please email Dr. Matthew Kennedy, Mathematics Department Chair, at mKennedy@LaurelSchool.org prior to enrolling in this course to ensure it is a good fit for your student.
