Ch 1: Foundations of Geometry: Homeschool Curriculum

The Foundations of Geometry unit of this High School Geometry Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about geometry basics. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Geometry Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about high school geometry basics. There is no faster or easier way to learn about geometry. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn inductive and deductive reasoning, postulates and theorems, algebraic laws and geometric postulates.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a geometry curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a basic geometry unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Foundations of Geometry Unit Objectives:

• Describe the field of geometry.
• Describe how to use inductive and deductive reasoning for geometry.
• State Thales' and Pythagoras' contributions to geometry.
• List the properties of an axiomatic system.
• Discuss how Euclid of Alexandria contributed to geometry.
• Define postulates and theorems and what they're used for.
