Geometry - Semester I

Description

Geometry – Semester I covers problem solving geometric applications. Lessons covered in the class include triangle similarity and congruence, complicated area problems, mastering the triangle, special quadrilaterals, circles, polygons, art of angle chasing and many more. In addition to these classes we conduct two exams to make sure students are on track of understanding the concepts and March towards completion of the course. This course is specifically designed to all levels of students with material from many programs and math competitions in around the city/state and country. Our idea is that students develop more by learning to solve problems they haven’t seen before, as opposed to offering repeated drills that students can memorize their way through. In this way, our classes are structured much more like courses at top-tier colleges.
