Geometry Schedule

  • The purpose of this course is to develop geometric reasoning concepts and processes that will enhance each student’s analytical reasoning that will be helpful when facing a variety of real-world decisions.  Geometry has applications in many fields, including art, architecture, the sciences, as well as other branches of mathematics.

    My major goals for the year are that all students in my class learn three different reasoning skills: deductive reasoning; inductive reasoning; and, abductive reasoning.  These reasoning skills will help each student accomplish the following: Develop analytical and reasoning skills needed to advance to higher-level math courses; Improve or engage reading comprehension by analyzing story problems and case studies involving algebra; Achieve the knowledge and skills needed to PASS or exceed requirements of the EOC Mathematics examination; Benefit from mathematical reasoning in solving problems in the real world; and, Appreciate that critical thinking skills will enhance the likelihood of successful outcomes.
