INTRODUCING A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY:
March 11-12, 25-26, April 8-9, 22-23, May 6-7, 2017; Berkeley, CA
I am extremely excited to announce the prospect of offering Making Math Real: Geometry in Spring of 2017. This would mark the first time in the 20 year history of the Making Math Real Institute that Geometry would be offered publicly as a part of the Making Math Real series of courses.
Making it Happen
I am excited about the possibility of including Making Math Real: Geometry as a part of the MMR series of seminars to show my commitment to those of you who have been so committed to Making Math Real. I have never been able to offer the Geometry course because I have not been able to get sufficient enrollment to make the course a viable addition to the MMR series – until now – maybe. A number of highly committed, long-term MMR veterans asked what it would take for me to offer the Geometry class. I told them I would need a minimum of 20 participants who were so committed to attending this course, they would be willing to pre-pay for the course one year in advance. This same group has taken it upon themselves to organize and network to bring together so far a group of 17 people who are good to go. Therefore, if three more MMR veterans also want Making Math Real: Geometry as much as these 17 by May 1, 2016, I will officially schedule the course for Spring of 2017.
What it Takes
The following are the requirements for Making Math Real: Geometry:
- Successful completion of Making Math Real: Fractions, Decimals, and Advanced Place Value; Making Math Real: Pre-Algebra; and Making Math Real: Algebra.*
- 50% non-refundable deposit ($874.50) towards the $1,749** cost of this 10-day seminar (all deposits will be returned if the course is either not offered and/or cancelled) received by May 1, 2016; and remaining 50% of enrollment received by January 2017.
* For this first offering of Making Math Real: Geometry only. Future offerings will require Making Math Real: The 4 Operations and the 400 Math Facts, Making Math Real: The 9 Lines Intensive, and Making Math Real: Kindergarten.
** There are no discounts offered with this course.
What’s in Store?
Making Math Real: Geometry is a synthesis course and will cover content spanning second grade through high school geometry including standard and metric units for length, weight, capacity, measurement for standard and metric rulers, conversions for standard and metric units, polygons and polyhedra, area, perimeter, surface area, and volume; unit analysis, coordinate geometry, using the protractor, fundamentals of geometry: points, lines, and planes; transformations: reflections, rotations, translations, and dilations, congruence and similarity, right triangles and the Pythagorean Theorem, trigonometry, properties of circles, arcs and sectors; area of regular polygons, and deductive proof.
Algebra in Spring 2016
Offering Making Math Real: Geometry as soon as Spring 2017 is only possible because I am scheduling Making Math Real: Algebra in Spring 2016. If you need Making Math Real: Algebra to complete the prerequisite requirements for Geometry, this upcoming Algebra class will be the last opportunity as the next Algebra class will be scheduled after the 2017 Geometry class. This is a most unique opportunity for you. Don’t miss out. Stay tuned for more information about the structure and design of the Making Math Real: Geometry course and updates in the count of reaching our goal of at least 20 participants by May 1, 2016 to make the course official.
