Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.
Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.
Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.
We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.
Geometry by Design provides students with historical knowledge about how people created mathematics, and in particular, geometry. Students use the ancient tools of straightedge and compass to do constructions, and ruler and protractor to make accurate drawings. The classical deductive system consisting of Euclid’s postulates and theorems is introduced to prove theorems about triangles and quadrilaterals.
Geometry by Design also introduces the modern geometric idea of transformations: reflection, rotation, translation, and dilation. Students explore these transformations with constructions and drawings, and also on a coordinate system.
