Honors Geometry

Honors Geometry students have been writing and graphing equations of circles outside on the front sidewalk of the high school. Students used nontraditional measuring units to determine the center and radius of their circles. They completed circle constructions using string and found the equations of the flagpole and friendship circles. Moving class outside gave the class a change of scenery and made learning a new concept fun for the whole class. It also provided an opportunity for students to work together and support each other through the learning process.
