Geometry is one of the oldest and most practical branches of mathematics. It is frequently the branch of mathematics that students with dyslexia take to most readily. Geometry leads children to logical thought and proof by an essential sequence of reasoning. Its importance for understanding the basic order of the world around us can’t be overstated.

The course provides a wide-ranging introduction to linear and solid geometry, including similar triangles, congruent triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, and introductory trigonometry. It is designed to provide an introduction to the subject, a chance for students to get a jump on the math expected in the upcoming year.

This course is set for the appropriate level of difficulty for students who are in the ninth or tenth grade.
