Advanced math students started the year studying
solid geometry with cones, cylinders, and rectangular
solids. Later, trignometric functions, logarithms, and
explanation of graphs were introduced. Mr. Nelson
has found that sending students to the black-board to
work equations makes math more enjoyable and
easier to understand.
Geometry students learned the advantages of a
knowledge of theorems, postulates, and proofs, and a
limited amount of solid geometry was included in
their studies. The students were also assisted in their
work by the use of compasses, straightedges, and
protractors. d d
