## MATH CLASSES

### Course Title:

Introduction to Geometry

Instructor: Ms. Hodges

### Description:

This course is designed to assist students who are

taking a year-long geometry program, solidifying the basic skills

they need to succeed in that class. Daily lessons will involve some

teacher presentation , followed by an activity to investigate the

day’s focus. Each class will begin with activities that help

students learn basic geometry terms and the coordinate graph

system . Subsequently, students will explore the properties of

triangles , parallel lines and transversals, polygons, and circles .

Students will practice using the Pythagorean Theorem and

explore ways to develop sound proofs; in addition, students will

pursue constructions and investigate the properties of 3-

dimensional figures as well as explore an introduction to

trigonometric functions .

### Course Title:

Introduction to Algebra 1

Instructor : Ms. Hodges

### Description:

This course is designed to help students be

successful in Algebra 1, both in terms of completing the

curriculum successfully and in developing a sound grasp of the

concepts beyond merely learning procedures and formulas . Each

of the fifteen Saturdays will have a specific focus, roughly

following the basic Algebra 1 high school format, from graphing

equations to factoring polynomials. Each lesson will be three-fold:

First, the concept of the day will be presented briefly but

dynamically. This introduction will be followed by small group

activities during which students investigate the material and

discover patterns and rules . Lastly, there will be time, every

session, to complete homework from school and to address any

issues or concerns students have with their math schoolwork.

### Course Title:

Math Learning Center

Instructor: Mrs. Johnson-Foell MA

### Description:

Description: This course is designed to provide the
advanced

math student a learning environment that will both motivate and

encourage further investigation into higher math. Instruction

consists of a series of lectures followed by an opportunity to

work on homework or improvement of skills. The lectures will

cover material that is not only applicable to the discipline but also

interesting and entertaining. Students will develop skills for

problem solving that are useful in other areas of study such as

science, history, and art.

### Course Title:

Introduction to Algebra 2

Instructor: Mrs. Johnson-Foell

### Description:

This course will encourage and provide a stimulating,

challenging learning environment for the second-year algebra

student. Skills learned earlier, such as investigating and problem-solving

will be enhanced by the classroom environment. Lecture

series will be followed by an opportunity to work on homework or

skills improvement. The lesson plan will have checkpoints to insure

understanding of subjects visited. The goal is to teach and

evaluate the students’ progress as they participate in Saturday

Academy classes. This course will provide students with the

encouragement and freedom to learn the topics needed to both

support and enhance regular school Algebra 2 courses. The

students will develop skills to solve complicated algebraic

problems. These skills are the pre-requisite for learning most

branches of modern mathematics. This course will provide the

student with tools to move forward and study other fields in

higher education.
