Throughout each math course, students are encouraged to use their reasoning ability. Students are trained to think naturally, logically, and systematically.
The textbook acquaints students with the fundamental tools of geometry in an interesting way. Students are impressed with the necessity of a formal proof before being plunged into demonstrative geometry. Many proofs are done for students to train them in the thinking process. The textbook places an emphasis on problem solving and student understanding. Care is taken throughout to ensure that theory leads to understanding and the ability to make application. New concepts are carefully explained and linked to previously learned material.
Students should expect to spend two (2) to three (3) hours outside of class completing each week's assignments.
Text books will be ordered by the director.
