About This Course
Welcome to the Math Medic Geometry course! Here you will find a ready-to-be-taught lesson for every day of the school year, along with expert tips and questioning techniques to help the lesson be successful. Each lesson is designed to be taught in an Experience First, Formalize Later (EFFL) approach, in which students work in small groups on an engaging activity before the teacher formalizes the learning.
Our Geometry course develops reasoning, justification, and proof skills through an in-depth study of shapes and their properties, rigid transformations and congruence, and the relationship between similarity and right triangle trigonometry. Rich opportunities for problem solving culminate in the unit on surface area and volume. This course was created using the Common Core State Standards as a guide. The standards taught in each Math Medic Geometry lesson can be found here. Additionally, we've chosen to include a unit on Statistics and Probability that can be used as a stand-alone unit at any time during high school course work. The unit overviews and learning targets for the Math Medic Geometry course can be found here.
