IN COLLECTION

**Curriki is grateful for the tremendous support of our sponsor, AT&T Foundation.**

**Our Team**

Curriki Geometry would not be possible if not for the tremendous contributions of the content contributors, editors, and reviewing team.

Janet Pinto, Lead Curriculum Developer & Curriki CAO

Sandy Gade Algra, Editor

Thom Markham, PBL Lead

Aaron King, Geometry Consultant

**Welcome to Curriki Geometry,** a project-based geometry course. This course offers six complete projects. All the projects are designed in a project-based learning (PBL) format.

All Curriki Geometry projects have been created with several goals in mind: accessibility, customization, and student engagement—all while encouraging students toward high levels of academic achievement. In addition to specific CCSS high school geometry standards, the projects and activities are designed to address the Standards for Mathematical Practice, which describe types of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students.

**How to Use Curriki Geometry**

Curriki Geometry has been specially created for you to use in the manner that suits your needs best. You have the option to use all the projects or only some projects in any order as supplements to your own curriculum. You can customize Curriki Geometry however works best for you.
