Owner/Tutor South County Math Tutor
Teaching others what I know has always been my passion. I am a math educator and I enjoy what I do. I recognize that there are a lot of resources available to student and it is my goal to make these resources useful.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and I am certified to teach math. I teach, tutor and develop curriculum for South County Math Tutor. I have over 10 years of teaching/tutoring experience.
I love what I do and I love learning new ways to sharpen my craft.
This course covers the first semester of a high school Geometry course. It is designed to help students preview and/or review topic learned in class. It is organized to review Geometry classroom topics on a weekly basis.
How to use this course:
This course will get you thinking about topics you encounter in class. It is your proactive approach to learning math. It can also be used as way to catch up or re-learn things missed in class.
This course will work well when used as a supplement to class work. This course is not designed with enough practice assignments to help build skills. You can use your assigned classwork as practice to help you build the skills needed to succeed in class.
If you need more practice assignments or more extensive tutoring you may contact me at www.SCMathTutor.com and I will be more than happy to help you.
The distance formula is derived from the pythagorean theorem.
Geometry proofs are like puzzles. Approach them like you are a detective.
Here are some general guidelines on how to approach proofs:
To be successful this week you need to...
· Watch as many proofs as possible.
· Study as many proofs as possible.
· Try as many proofs as possible.
By now you should know ALL previous definition, postulates, theorems that you've encountered this year.
· Look through the first few proof examples in you book.
· Cover over the reasons for some of the two column proofs and try to see if you can come up with these reasons yourself.
· Go through the odd questions in your book without looking and check your answers when you are done.
· Ask questions about things you don't understand! Don't wait till the last minute.
Practice Practice Practice!
Always plan out your proofs before you attempt them. :-)
