Course Description
This course will provide the learner with a better understanding of the underlying concepts of geometry. Through readings, lessons, quizzes and independent explorations, the learner will leave the course with more complete understanding of geometry and begin to be able to think in a geometrical fashion. Websites are also provided to help the learner further explore the topics on his/her own. At the end of this unit, the learner will be able to describe some of the basic premises behind geometric thinking, reasoning and study. They will also be able to demonstrate the following learning objectives:
Objectives (based on the Van Hiele levels of geometric thought):
 Students will be able to demonstrate the ability identify the ways geometry is used by people in their daily lives (i.e. professions, synthetic universe, natural universe, in the home, etc...)
 Students will be able to recognize and name figures (triangle, square, rectangle, rhombus, parellelogram, polygon, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, kite, rectangular and triangular pyramids, prisms, cone, sphere) [Level 0 Visualization]
 Students will be able to analyze various properties of shapes (i.e. right angles, parallel sides, number of sides, number of corners, etc...) [Level 1 Analysis]
 Students will be able to construct relationships between classes of figures (i.e. rectangles are parallelograms with a right angle, etc…) [Level 2 Informal Deduction]
 Students will be able to think deductively in regards to geometrical concepts. [Level 3 and 4 Deduction/Rigorous Proof]

Student Testimonials
 "I thought the most helpful was the part that explained about the faces, edges, and different shapes."  Amanda F.
 "All of it the course was great. The instructor is great."  Barry S.
 "I found the whole program to be helpful. It gave me a better understanding of geometry and the world of geometry."  Alexis B.
 "All of it was very helpful, it was very well explained."  Betty G.
 "As an introductory course I think the course was above excellent and a very high quality teacher. I liked the methodology used to teach geometry because it clarified a lot of areas for me. The course was structured so that I could learn the concepts and not worry too much about performance. I have to admit that this is the first math/science class that I have thoroughly enjoyed."  Francisco M.
 "I flunked 7th and 8th grade math. learned what I should have learned in this course. Thanks, just thanks."  Irene T.
 "Good job."  Isaiah H.
