The projects in Time4Learning Geometry allow students to practice geometry in a hands-on manner, often in ways that clearly and directly relate to real-world challenges. At this level of study, geometry is primarily focused on plane Euclidean geometry. Students build on concepts of symmetry, shape, and relations and learn to use tools, formulas, and theorems to determine dimensions, angles, volumes, and surface area. In addition, students learn to use more detailed definitions and develop careful proofs. Geometry students learn concepts through lessons and practice. Fun projects extend the study of geometry and make a connection to real-world use of geometry skills. Practical uses for geometry include building, including measuring amounts and angles of wood for construction, graphic design, interpreting schematic drawings or interpreting and copying sewing patterns. At the successful completion of this course, students will be ready to move on to Algebra II or Trigonometry.
