Course Overview: This course is designed to provide students with a contextual experience in developing geometry skills. Problemsolving drives the exploration of numbers, algebra, geometry, measurement, and probability. Students learn about spatial concepts such as attributes of two and three dimensional shapes, proof techniques, trigonometry, and proportional reasoning. The ActivEd class distinguishes itself as different from the standard Geometry class not by teaching a different curriculum, but by formulating alternative projects and assessments. Projects and assessments are created in an attempt to appeal to students who have not been finding success in the regular standard classes.
