Course Description
Although we may not always recognize it, we use basic geometry skills regularly in everyday life. For instance, we consider whether a picture on the wall is parallel with the floor, or we calculate the area of a room when installing new carpeting.
Geometry is also an integral part of many other areas of study, including physics and other natural sciences. This course provides a more rigorous mathematical foundation for both practical and theoretical geometric thinking.
The course begins by considering basic figures such as points, lines, and planes, and then expands into the concepts of parallelism and perpendicularity as well as more complicated geometric figures such as polygons (triangles, quadrilaterals, and so on) and circles. The course considers mainly twodimensional figures, but two lessons on threedimensional geometry provide more complete coverage of the subject.
Each successive lesson in the course builds on previous lessons, culminating in lessons that teach the student how to calculate lengths, areas, and volumes of more complicated figures. In addition to its indepth discussion of the mathematical aspects of geometry, the course also includes lessons on how to draw various figures using a compass and straightedge as well as a lesson on strategy for solving realworld geometry problems.

 "Course was a bit difficult for me, instructor was available and helped me when I needed help!...Course was a bit difficult for me, instructor was available and helped me when I needed help!"  Marcus M.
 "This was a great course. I learned a lot about Geometry and am excited to use what I learned here in my high school. It was definitely better than some of the other Universal courses I took because this instructor, Mr. Clark, was more organized and thorough with his lessons, and it was easier to understand him than other university's instructors....This was a great course.
