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]

Course Lessons
Lesson 1  Geometry in Our World
Geometry surrounds all of us, making it a safer and more productive place.Lesson 2  Learning All About Shapes
At the beginning of any study of geometry, one must be able to identify shapes. Many of the names of shapes are derived from how many sides, angles or how the sides relate to each other.Lesson 3  Tessellations
A tessellation is defined as a pattern of shapes which are all closed and totally cover a surface.Lesson 4  Symmetry
Symmetry refers to both parts of a shape or figure as having equal or matching points.Lesson 5  Pentominoes
To create a pentomino one must connect five of the blocks on the grid together where they only touch on one side.Lesson 6  Three Dimensional Shapes
Shapes which have length, width and thickness are known as threedimensional shapes.Lesson 7  Perimeter
In twodimensional shapes, the perimeter is the distance around the shapes.Lesson 8  Area
The area of an object is how much space it takes upLesson 9  IfThen Statements
An ifthen statement is a statement where each part is contingent on the other.Lesson 10  Area of ThreeDimensional Objects
There are two different types of area which can be calculated for threedimensional shapes, surface area and volume.Lesson 11  Translations, Reflections, Rotations
There are four types of isometries which are: translations, rotations, reflections and glide reflections.Lesson 12  Classifying Shapes by Properties
The process of drawing conclusions about shapes and theories is an important aspect of geometry.Lesson 13  Proofs and Abstract thinking in Geometry
A proof is the process of drawing as many true conclusions about the information provided as possible to gain the narrowest viewpoint about what is presented.Lesson 14  Geometry in Our Universe
Geometric patterns can be found in the nonsynthetic universe and in the synthetic or manmade universe.Lesson 15  Geometry in Professions
There are numerous professions which need to have a basic understanding of the principles of geometry in order for success within the profession.

Student Testimonials
 "The instructor was very helpful."  Abigail N.
 "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.
