The geometry course allows students to learn all about geometry and the basics of logic. Students learn how to use proofs and learn about many different proofs in their study of both 2D and 3D shapes. Students gain a solid understanding of triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons, as well as gaining a very good foundation in 3D shapes. Students learn how to use trigonometry in triangles and learn about trigonometric functions and identities. By the end of the course, students can use geometry in both coordinate planes and can study geometric objects without them. They learn how to calculate perimeter, area, surface area and volume. Students have also learned about aspects of probability including conditional probability as well as permutations and combinations, and have also learned about various transformations for 2D and 3D shapes. As a live class instructor, you work closely with the course director to instruct students across the globe! Using presentations created by the course director, you run regular weekly classes and grade student work on quizzes and other assignments. As a self-paced class instructor, you regularly check different quizzes in the course and grade the work of students who have been assigned to you. You also help them as needed via email and communicate regularly if you see that they are falling behind in the course.
The time commitment is:
Live class instructor: Grade work and run a live class each week, approx 1.5hrs per week
Self-paced class instructor: Grade work, approx. 1hr per week
