Summer Intensive Geometry
The 2017 Summer Intensive Geometry course is intended for current FUHSD students who completed Algebra 1 in 9th grade and who want to advance to Algebra 2 or Algebra 2/Trigonometry in 10th grade.
The course was designed as part of the district's transition to Common Core. Since a year-long course will be compressed into a 6-week intensive summer class, the class will be quite rigorous: each instructional day is four hours of class time, and is the equivalent of about a week of regular school year content. Assessments will take place approximately every other day. You will also be expected to complete additional assignments and projects independently. The first unit of study is expected to be completed online in its entirety during the week before the summer course begins, with a test on that material on the first day. To be successful in this Summer Intensive Geometry course, you will need to demonstrate a strong commitment by attending and fully engaging in the course work every day, both in and out of class. The current estimate for time spent out of class is 3-5 hours for the unit to be completed before the first day, and 1-2 hours per day/week for the duration of the course. This amount of time may vary based on your study skills and prior knowledge.
A letter was sent home in late February to eligible students about the SIG course and registration process. The deadline to pre-register for the Summer Intensive Geometry course was March 17 at 5:00 p.m.
In late April, after progress report grades are published, students who have pre-registered will receive follow up information and an online form to complete the registration process.
