Geometry

Master Teacher: Angela Ellis
Duration: Yearlong course offered in fall/spring (32 weeks).
Suggested High School Credit Value: 1 credit.
Suggested Grade Level: 9th grade level and up.
Tuition: $549 for HSLDA Members / $629 for non-members.

Description: Geometry teaches students to look for logic and order in the world that God created. Students discover properties, theorems, and rules for relationships within a distinctly Christian worldview while utilizing general problem-solving techniques to explore geometric relationships. Students learn to inductively develop conjectures about properties and relationships, and then verify them deductively. This course emphasizes two- and three-dimensional thinking skills, coordinate and transformational geometry, and the use of geometric models in its problem-solving methods.

  • How much homework is in Geometry?

    We estimate that the course workload will take 5-7 hours per week. During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

    • 60-90 minutes of live class instruction
    • 1-2 lecture videos
    • IXL practice problems (no set number to complete)
    • 1 quiz
    • Discussion forum

    Throughout the year, students complete unit tests every 2-3 weeks as well as an exam at the end of each semester.

  • What books will I use in Geometry?

    The official booklist for Geometry is now available. In the official booklist, you will find information about the editions, book descriptions, and ISBN numbers.

    You can order course materials for competitive prices through the Christianbook.com bookstore. Use the Textbook Finder to locate the required resources for your courses. Please note that while most books are available through Christianbook.com, some titles are not carried and will need to be purchased elsewhere.

  • Prerequisites

    Students entering Geometry should have completed an Algebra 1 course.

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in Geometry?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

  • What if I have a schedule conflict with the listed Geometry class time?

    All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
