    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this class, I really liked geometry. However most students who take this class either love it or hate it as far as how easily they learn it. Just remember that it is very different from other maths because a lot of it is using theorems to prove things about shapes rather than finding a mathematical answer.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this class I learned how to find angles in a shape based on the other angles and/or sides, probabilities, and lots of theorems, many of which were based on the Pythagorean theorem.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Understanding geometry definintely depends on your way of learning. As I said before, often times students either love it or hate it. I personally found it not very hard, but others might disagree.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a great foundation for the rest of your high school math career, and works with well with certain elements of algebra classes.

    Course highlights:

    This class focused a lot on relationships between angles and shapes and explaining how and why they exist. We explored different theorems with triangles, shapes and other quadrilaterals like the 30-60-90 rule and the Pythagorean theorem. In this class we were also introduced to proofs which encouraged students to breakdown as detailed as possible, why shapes, angles and other mathematical structures are made up the way they are.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class structure was pretty lose. There would be a quick explanation of an idea followed by one or two examples and then a small amount of time to practice on your own. This went on in a cycle to cover a lesson per class. Following the examples and trying them are very important to your success, although knowing the theorems, formulas and rules is important, how to apply them is the most crucial.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this with Mr. Wickham as Wickham is a "cut to the chase" style teacher who will teach you the method or technique required, then spend the rest of class to help you get it down and practice through coursework. Best of all, Mr. Wickham makes geometry a significantly less stressful course, making it a great one to undergo.

    Course highlights:

    Geometry has taught me how to measure out and find the missing sides, angles, and circumferences of all shapes, which is incredibly useful for one who needs to build and construct properties from scratch. Wonderful class!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even if you finish homework in class, make sure to at least look over it the same night, because saying that you'll remember how to perform a formula almost never works. Practice practice practice!
