Getting Ready for Geometry Part I
Multiple Session Class
Three one hour sessions
Students who are entering Geometry this fall.
Did your student miss some of their math class due to school closures last year? Would you like them to receive additional support to prepare for taking Geometry this year? This two-part workshop will introduce students to the four most important topics to help students feel prepared to take Geometry. They will also be given resources for additional practice at home as well as the tools to determine strengths and weaknesses. Live, interactive sessions will be taught in small groups by a licensed high school math teacher. In the first session, students will get ready for congruence, similarity, and triangle trigonometry. They will also review solving equations as this previously learned skill is crucial for success in Geometry.
Max of 10 students
Monday 8/3, Wednesday 8/5, and Friday 8/7 from 7:30-8:30 p.m. online
