The Institute for Teaching Excellence: Geometry (Online)  

Course Description: Participants will explore the most current perspectives of High School Geometry. Connecting algebraic and geometric thinking, the course will apply material from Algebra I and look to concepts covered in Algebra II and Pre-Calculus through a geometric lens. Topics will include the following:
Sequences, rate of change, functions, area under a curve, trigonometry, geometric means, areas of plane figures, areas and volumes of solids, coordinate geometry and transformations

Strategies to use throughout the year that allow for students to self-evaluate and work with others

Using manipulatives to develop geometric concepts before rigorous application

Implementing methods of discovery throughout the curriculum

Developing meaningful student projects throughout a geometry course

Assessment in geometry: Connecting geometric proof with justifying your answer and answering the question, "What makes my geometry test delving?"

Implications of the use of technology in geometry

Multi-representational approaches to teaching geometry
