Geometry

Academic Year Mathematics

Students learn how to think spatially in our Geometry course. We start with fundamental concepts, from which we build a rich, rigorous tapestry of relationships. Students learn how to dissect complex configurations and discover the key insights that allow them to solve difficult problems. We also teach analytic methods for tackling geometry problems by placing them on the Cartesian plane, and we introduce trigonometry, thereby laying foundations for precalculus and calculus. Many of the challenging problems of Geometry come from contests such as MATHCOUNTS and AMC 10/12, with a few problems from very advanced contests included to stretch the strongest students.

Students completing Geometry are ready to return to their study of algebra with our Algebra 2 course.

Textbook: Introduction to Geometry by Art of Problem Solving

Hardcopy and temporary access to the online version of the textbook are included in the tuition and fees of this course.

Sample Problems

Below are examples of some of the types of problems that students will encounter in our Geometry course.
"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
