The Explore Geometry Curriculum teaches students about angles, proofs, volume, and area. Activities relate real-world problems to geometry. The curriculum is aligned to standards for students in grades 9-12.
Explore Geometry includes Student Books with 10 chapters of content, each split into four topics. Each topic opens with an introductory statement from a professor, a topic-related illustration, and highlighted vocabulary that is explored within the text/dialog. After the instruction and example sections, there are two practice activities. Following the four topics, a Chapter Challenge section introduces a final topic that builds upon the chapter skills, or introduces a related, advanced topic. Each chapter ends with a Chapter Check-up, consisting of a brief assessment from each of the chapter topics and challenge.
Consumable Student Workbooks (presented as a 2-book set) are included to coincide with the lesson content.
The accompanying Instructor's Guide incorporates lesson plans for all 10 chapters of the Student Book. Using evidence-based practices, it provides effective teaching strategies for all students. The Instructor’s Guide provides tips for how to use the included Protractor and Coordinate Plane, as well as content-based activities to foster engagement.
An easy-to-read Protractor has been included to assist with finding angles. A Coordinate Plane with coordinate pegs and a line indicator are also part of the Explore Geometry Curriculum. A variety of digital resources can be downloaded from the Attainment HUB for easy printing or projecting onto whiteboards. Extra activities, Chapter Check-Ups, and several blank templates for creating your own activities and tools are available to help you effectively implement the Explore Geometry Curriculum.
To differentiate lessons for varied levels of learners, we've created an Alternate level, Level A, for students who struggle to bridge concrete to abstract concepts. By lessening the complexity of the text and emphasizing the Big Ideas through illustrations, Level A provides a way for students with emerging skills to participate in upper-level geometry concepts.
Curriculum Includes: One Student Book, an Instructor’s Guide with downloadable, reproducible content, one set of Consumable Student Workbooks (Book One and Book Two), Big Ideas Cards, Vocabulary Cards, a Script Procedure Card, a Protractor, a Coordinate Plane, and digital files on the HUB.
Curriculum Plus Includes: The Curriculum plus 10 sets of Consumable Student Workbooks (10 copies of Book One and 10 copies of Book Two), the entire page set of Student Workbook pages as accessible GoWorksheets (iPad only), and samples of communication overlays. The GoWorksheets can be used with the free GoWorksheet app or the full GoWorksheet Plus app available on the App Store.
