Geometry A

Why This Class

As a parent, you know life has its ups and downs. You want your student to become skilled at solving life’s problems with a level head, using logic to balance out emotion. This course helps by guiding your student on an introduction to geometry, which offers a set of logical thinking skills they can’t gain any other way.

Students in this self-paced course use Khan Academy to refine their reasoning skills through studying and applying concepts such as triangles and trigonometry, area and perimeters, lines and angles, and foundational statistics. With the help of math tutors as needed, students improve as logical thinkers as they practice taking a systematic approach to solving problems—beginning with what they know and moving step by step toward solutions.

Students emerge from this course with the awareness that many questions (in math and life) require a methodical, logical, multi-step approach to answer. They are more calm and persistent in solving problems wherever they find them.
