Planned schedule:

Monday | Wednesday | Friday |

1/28 Introductions, some interesting topics Pictures from class HW: Skim through the textbooks, and find several topics you would like to learn about. |
1/30 Bring in your "interesting topics" list Angles in circles assignments |
2/1 More circles and flow chart proofs (intersecting chords). Some similarity review. Today's assignment (due Monday) |

2/4 Sign up to teach a topic. E-mail me if you didn't turn in a preference list in class. Still more reasoning and circles. Power of a point. Write a flow-chart proof of the power of a point result where the point lies outside the circle (see picture 2 here: http://www.cut-the-knot.org/pythagoras/PPower.shtml) |
2/6 More circles: | 2/8 Probably more circles |

2/11 Trigonometry: similarity and trig functions; solving right triangle problems (DG 12.1 and 12.2) | 2/13 Trigonometry: Law of sines and law of cosines (DG 12.3 and 12.4--leave 10 minutes please) | 2/15 Trigonometry: extending to the unit circle and the Pythagorean identitiy |

2/18 Trigonometry: sum of angles formulas | 2/22 Exam | |

2/25 Basic constructions | 2/27 Hexagons and Pentagons | 3/1 Incenters and Circumcenters. Assignment: The homework is to make 6 triangles: 2 scalene acute, 2 scalene obtuse and 2 scalene right triangles. Find/construct the circumcenter of each of them. Then make a conjecture relating the position of the circumcenter to the type of triangle. (see Geometry sec. 3.7) |

3/4 Concurrence 1 | 3/6 Concurrence 2 (Centroids) | 3/8 Ceva's theorem |
