Fundamentals of Geometry – Part I (Online)
Grade 7-8 Students (September to May)
Geometry is a wonderful playground for developing logical and consistent thinking. It may be regarded as a game played by axiomatic rules created by the ancient Greeks. However, this classical part of mathematics is practically nonexistent as a subject in the curriculum of Canadian schools.
The School of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton University offers a non-credit enrichment course for students in grade 7-8.
We propose to cover the following topics:
- Parallelism, Congruency and Similarity Properties of the Triangle (including median, perpendicular bisector, angle bisector, altitude, and their respective intersections)
- Pythagorean Theorem and related problems
- The Circle (including the power of a point with respect to a circle)
- Area relationships
- Geometric Constructions (some problems about Geometric Loci)
These topics will be covered in-depth and are not related to Ontario Elementary or Secondary School Curriculum.
Fundamentals of Geometry I is a required course for the admission to Fundamentals of Geometry II and Competitive Math II.
