Geometry - AoPS Academy

Geometry

Academic Year Mathematics

Students learn how to think spatially in our Geometry course. We start with fundamental concepts, from which we build a rich, rigorous tapestry of relationships. Students learn how to dissect complex configurations and discover the key insights that allow them to solve difficult problems. We also teach analytic methods for tackling geometry problems by placing them on the Cartesian plane, and we introduce trigonometry, thereby laying foundations for precalculus and calculus. Many of the challenging problems of Geometry come from contests such as MATHCOUNTS and AMC 10/12, with a few problems from very advanced contests included to stretch the strongest students.

Students completing Geometry are ready to return to their study of algebra with our Algebra 2 course.

Textbook: Introduction to Geometry by Art of Problem Solving

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
