Geometry SDAIE is a college preparatory, two semester course designed for English Language Learners who are at the Beginning, Early Intermediate and Intermediate levels of listening, speaking, reading and writing in English. English Language Learners in this SDAIE course cover the same essential content and utilize the same basic textbook, supplemented with content parallel materials at an easier reading level, as their Fluent English Speaker counterparts. In addition, primary language materials will be provided, when available, to facilitate the preview and review of essential content. The course varies in the pacing, instructional methodology, and supplemental materials used which are designed to provide depth vs. breadth of the content standards, more comprehensible input, primary language support, and literacy development through the content area. 


This college preparatory class meets year two of the UC three-year mathematics requirement, as well as satisfying a year of Pajaro Valley High’s graduation requirement for mathematics.  This comprehensive overview of plane and solid geometry will investigate patterns of Euclidean proofs.  In addition, students will investigate, ask questions, make and test conjectures, reflect on and then communicate ideas both orally and in writing.
