**MATH CLASSES – CONROE CAMPUS**

##### Geometry (Introduction to Trig) - Teaching Textbooks - Ron Bowman

Expected time outside of class each week needed for preparation and homework will average between 4 – 5 hours.

Geometry Teaching Textbooks is a unique math program written specifically for homeschoolers in an easy-to-digest conversational tone. This course covers inductive/deductive reasoning, lines, angles, triangles, inequalities, quadrilaterals, polygons, trigonometry, circles, and coordinate geometry. There are two options for parents to choose from: 1) purchase book, answer key/test bank only or 2) additionally purchase the audiovisual CD’s to see solutions worked out for every problem. NOTE: **CD’s are recommended for this course** to help students work proofs. Please check the Teaching Textbooks web-site at teachingtextbooks.com.

**How does this course work?** First, students will follow the class syllabus throughout the year. Concepts for the week will be reviewed in class along with the practice problems for the week. Students will then be ready to work assigned lessons and chapter tests at home. __Homework is to be graded by the student/parent.__ Parents should monitor their student’s homework each day making students accountable to complete homework assignments. __All tests will be graded by the teacher.__ Secondly, in-class quizzes we be given to monitor students’ progress. Grades will be kept by the teacher and averaged grades will be sent each semester to the parents. Finally, __a one-time $25 supply fee____ is due upon registration.__ This fee will cover the printing of chapter tests and handouts given to the parents at the beginning of each semester.

The class will be one hour and 45 minutes. ** Prerequisites:** Algebra I and Algebra II. Geometry can be a challenging course for many students, I do recommend the CD’s for this course to help especially with the proofs.
