High School Geometry Curriculum
Time4Learning’s Geometry curriculum is one of five math courses offered at the high school level. Students can expect to see various concepts being covered including points, lines, and planes, logic and reasoning, angles, slopes, triangles, polygons, circles, volume, area, and more.
Our online geometry course addresses the critical areas of congruence, proof, and constructions, trigonometry, three-dimensional figures and more. These areas of importance will help students apply geometric concepts in modeling situations, solve novel problems, reason abstractly, and think critically.
High School Geometry is usually auto-assigned to Time4Learning students in grade 10. However, parents can choose a different math course if they prefer. Read on to learn more about our homeschool Geometry curriculum.
How to Teach Geometry
Teaching high school geometry is an important step in expanding your child’s foundation in math. It gives them the opportunity to build on their conceptual understanding of rigid transformations established in middle school and make algebraic connections that they’ve learned in the past.
The following tips will help parents teach high school geometry lessons:
- Use graphics, charts, diagrams, and animations to enrich your child’s learning experience.
- Incorporate multimedia devices, videos and printed materials.
- Mix in real-life topics to make the material more relevant.
- Include rubrics, checklists, and grading tools for easier grading of written assignments and projects.
- Provide plenty of instruction so that your student fully understands the assignments.
- Use the proper educational tools that will make teaching geometry entertaining and interesting.
- Measure your child’s progress at the end of each lesson/chapter with a quiz, test or other assessment method.
Learning Objectives for Geometry
A high school geometry curriculum will include multiple objectives for students. By the end of tenth grade students should have a grasp on geometric transformations, right triangle relationships and trigonometry, applications of probability and more.
Additional objectives for high school geometry include:
- Applying the protractor postulate and angle addition postulate to calculate angle measures.
- Constructing parallel and perpendicular lines.
- Determining unknown measures of congruent figures.
- Solving real-world problems involving special right triangles.
- Applying properties of parallelograms to solve problems.
- Determining the radian measure of a central angle.
- Calculating probabilities using the addition rule.
