Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to work on Geometry but at a somewhat fast pace.
When the class finally got into circles, it was a small break from learning about triangles. The class learned about the area of a circle, circumference, semi-circles, radiuses, and much more.

Advice for students:
Yes, this class is a bit fast but if you keep up with your geometry work, you'll do fine. To keep up with your work, study and practice at home and at school. Always copy down notes from the board. Copy notes that are clear and understandable to read. If you didn't get all the notes, copy down from a classmate's notes. Don't get nervous about asking them for notes, they are in this class together with you and they should understand how fast this class can get. Use your notes as a guide and be sure to ask questions to your teacher. By asking questions on geometry to your teacher, you'll gain more knowledge by the answers you'll receive. Never get worried that your teacher will think that you're slow for asking questions on things you don't know about. Your teacher will actually get really happy for questions. They will know that you are trying to focus and understand. Teachers like that- believe me. Geometry for almost anyone can take some time to understand and that's normal. It took me some time. Just ask questions at the start of the course and you'll make it a habit. Also, you'll earn yourself participation points! :) Geometry can be hard once you look at it, but if you study and practice, you'll seriously notice how easy it can be. In the beginning, I was so caught with other work for my classes and I didn't do much with geometry. Don't do what I did. Geometry takes time so make time for it. You can do it. Don't forget your other classes now. Just stay positive and focus on things you need to know about. When I started making some time for Geometry, I realized how easy can be. There is much small homework to do. Do them but don't rush. Make sure you'll fully understand what you are working on. Make sure to complete your homework because that also helps with participation points. If you sometimes struggle in geometry class, like I did, go to math tutoring. Have notes and scrap paper for you and your tutor. Be nice to your tutor, they are the one helping you. Show them what you don't understand and do practice problems with them. Don't ever be ashamed of what you don't know. I felt like I was slow when I didn't understand things but when I got help from a tutor, a teacher, or a friend- I felt a whole lot better on Geometry. At the end of the course, there is a big Geometry Final on everything you've learned. Please go review and practice anything you've learned in that class. This is the time to go over geometry stuff with a someone who can help you study. Watch some Khan Academy videos to help you. Make sure you understand everything in this course. Do your best and don't get tired of this course. All this practicing and working will count. Put your best, hard working effort in this class. And I mean YOUR BEST, HARDWORKING EFFORT! Don't stress, you got this! ;)
