Geometry B

Why This Class

To prepare your student for a healthy and happy future, you want to help them master the art of decision making. This course helps by raising your student’s skill-level in geometry—which has been a core feature in the education of thousands of leaders because it teaches the analytical and deductive reasoning methods that lead to good decisions.

Students in this self-paced course use Khan Academy to examine proofs involving lines and angles, explore the properties of circles and other conic sections, apply the principles of probability to real-life scenarios, and learn the applications of trigonometry to new kinds of problem-solving. With the support of math tutors as needed, students also develop their spatial reasoning skills and see how mathematics defines shapes and their properties.

By the end of this course, students gain experience in using principles to analyze a given set of facts and, in turn, decide what’s true. They also realize the value of that skill in life and leadership, as well as math.
