Recorded HS
Math
Geometry with McDougal Littell, Part One

Register for Geometry with Mrs. Nardozzi to dive deep into the incredible world of two- and three-dimensional shapes as created by our majestic God. We will learn how to think critically about math situations, which will help us build a way of logically coming to truthful conclusions. This is a skill desperately needed in our world!

Total classes: 14

Prerequisite: Algebra 1

Suggested grade level: 9th to 11th

Suggested credit: One full semester Math or Geometry

##### Description

Each lesson from the textbook will have a recording for students to watch and the recorded live class is the instructor answering homework questions. This means that there will be 2-3 recordings (around 15-20 minutes long) for students to watch each week. In the recorded live class, the teacher will answer questions and lead the students through practice problems.
This course will allow students to study the size, shape, and characteristics of two- and three-dimensional shapes. It will also increase a student’s capacity to think using logic and critical thinking skills. In McDougal Littell students are introduced to proof early in the text. At first they are given the proof with pieces of the proof missing that are to be filled in by the students. After this is practiced, students will then be asked to create a two-column proof from start to finish. The text is not full of proofs, but they are continually sprinkled throughout the text so that students continue to see them and continue to get stronger writing them. Tests and quizzes will not be full of proofs but will likely have a proof to fill in and occasionally do completely on their own. The textbook itself has large, easy to read print. It has a combination of several practice problems for students to grow in their comfort of the new topic and then also some application problems that are more challenging.
