GEOMETRY PREP
(GRADES 8-10)

Emphasis will be placed on vocabulary, logical thinking, and completeness of formal geometric proofs. Students will investigate, make conjectures, and form conclusions. The focus of this enrichment program will include deductive reasoning, line and angle relationships, triangles, and congruency, parallelism, proving polygons congruent and similar, right triangle properties, circles, and area and volume. We will reinforce skills such as how to construct knowledge through logical reasoning, problem solving, and communication.

PRE-ALGEBRA
(GRADES 7-8)

The purpose of this course is two-fold: first, assist students who find mathematics to be an “obstacle course” by developing necessary skills to succeed, and secondly, challenge those students who wish to deepen their analytical and logical abilities. Topics include: evaluating numerical and algebraic expressions, building and solving a variety of equations, solving and applying proportions, applying properties and operations to integers and rational numbers, and exploring perimeter and area of plane figure as well as surface area and volume of three-dimensional figures. Graphing calculator is strongly recommended.
