I am a lifelong student who loves learning, and who loves to teach even more. My path through college included pre-veterinary studies, a brief encounter with engineering which took me through calculus 2, then on to liberal arts with a focus in psychology and Spanish for my B.S. in Liberal Arts from UF. My next turn took me into the dental hygiene program, earning an A.S. degree. I later entered graduate school (also at UF: Go Gators!) in entomology & nematology, until my first son was born. I always say that I haven't been bored a day since! Although I practiced in the field of dentistry for 27 years as a "career", I will never stop learning. After 13 years of homeschooling my 3 children, I fell in love with teaching just about anything, but my greatest passion is teaching my students, as I did my children, to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
**ALL MATH STUDENTS WILL NEED TO TAKE A PLACEMENT TEST AFTER REGISTRATION TO DETERMINE IF THEY ARE READY FOR THE SELECTED LEVEL (unless they took and passed a math class at UA for the 2021-22 school year).
Class Days: Wednesdays - 1:30 - 3:25 p.m.
**We will take a break between hours since this is a 2-hour class:) **
Emphasis is on vocabulary of geometry, practical applications of geometry, and traditional geometry including proofs. Includes lines, angles, area, perimeter, volume, Pythagorean theorem, axioms, and postulates, congruancy, and similarity. Brief introduction to trigonometric functions.
