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.
