About the Course
This highly intensive course, designed by Stanford mathematicians, teaches students geometry through the lens of formal logic. Not only will students learn geometric properties, but they will also understand how they are derived directly from the axioms.
What Makes Geometry: Intro to Proofs Different?
 
 
Points of Concurrency
View a preview of lectures, exercises, and course notes used to help students gain an understanding of geometry topics. Students complete assignments which assist them to learn proof writing skills. Launch Video
 
 
Non-Circular Logic
View an example of a real-world problem which discusses the possibility of having a non-circular shape with a constant diameter. Students use algebra and other facts to prove it has a constant width. Launch Video

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if this course is right for my child?

Initial placement decisions for most courses are determined using input from a student and their parents. If you need assistance in choosing a course, please use our Course Advisor wizard. You can also chat or email us here.

What is the recommended time a student should spend on each course?

To help students achieve their maximum potential, we recommend that they work in each course at least 20-30 minutes daily, a minimum of 3 days a week. For more information on schedules that our G&T.com students have used to accelerate their learning for each course, click here.

What happens if my student finishes the course early?

If the student finishes the course with time remaining in his/her quarter, he/she can continue to the next course in sequence with the remaining time for no additional cost. To complete a course transfer, contact a member of our Customer Experience Team.
