Geometry

Note: This curriculum is based on a schedule with 50 minute classes. In addition, I’m a firm believer in having a very flexible pace because I believe teachers should have discretion when determining how much time to focus on concepts. So, if your students need extra time with transformations, for example, then spend extra days with them. This curriculum is definitely not one size fits all, and I actually go at a different pace each year. Please feel free to use it as a guide, but certainly do not feel like you’re doing something wrong if you don’t follow it day by day.
