List of 5 items.

  • Geometry

    Date: June 17 - July 26
    Time: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    Grade: 9 - 11
    Credit: Full Year
    Instructor: Ms. Kellie Sprague
    Fee: $2,000

    In this course students study geometric structure employing both inductive and deductive reasoning. Reasoning and proof are emphasized throughout the year as students learn about congruence, similarity,and measurement of both plane and solid figures. Students employ the skills that they learned in AlgebraI to find unknown angle measures,areas, volumesand distance, and to solve right triangles using trigonometric ratios. With the objective of understanding structure, students explore transformations on the coordinate plane focusing upon both congruence and similarity of figures.

    Prerequisite: completion of Algebra I

  • Geometry Honors

    Dates: June 17 - August 7
    Times: 10 hours with Instructor at the start of the course
    Credit: Full year
    Grade: 9 - 10
    Instructor: Ms. Kellie Sprague
    Fee: $2,000

    This challenging blended face-to-face and online course stresses the development of a system of logic based on deductive reasoning. It is designed for students who have excelled in a rigorous Algebra I course, and who can work and think independently, deriving new ideas and concepts from previously learned skills. Students learn definitions and postulates, prove theorems, and build the system of geometry. They also gain the ability to analyze a problem, to hypothesize a conclusion, and then to write a logical, two-column formal proof.The class also includes the study of angle relationships of parallel and perpendicular lines; similarity and congruence of polygons; circles, arcs, and associated angles; coordinate geometry; area and volume; and constructions. Admission to Geometry Honors is by permission of the Department.

    Prerequisite: successful completion of Algebra I Honors, permission of the Math Department, only open to Viewpoint students.
  • Global Economics

    Dates: June 11 - June 28
    Times: 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
    Credit: One semester
    Instructor: Mr. Eric Steiger
    Grades: 11 - 12
    Fee: $1,000
     
    The goal of this course is to provide students with a basic working knowledge of our global economy and how it has developed to its current state. Students will build an appreciation for how economic systems, practices, and resources differ around the world, and will learn how they might apply this knowledge to everyday experiences. Some aspects of this course will be offered in a format that blends on-site classroom and independent work through digital platforms.
  • Online Explorations in Coding II

    Date: June 11 - July 26
    Grade: 10
    Credit: One Semester
    Instructor: Ms. Nancy Argano-Rush and Ms. Anneke Emerson
    Fee: $1,000


    This online course is designed to extend and expand the learning opportunities for students who have completed Explorations in Coding I. In this semester long course, students advance their knowledge of foundational concepts and skills of programming and computer science. Students build their understanding of programming through coding explorations, practices, and projects in Python, where they create animations, games, and other interactive programs. This online course is designed for rising tenth graders and prepares students to take AP Computer Science Principles as an eleventh grader.

    Instructors will often be in contact with online students through email, MyViewpoint and video conferencing.
  • Physics

    Dates: June 17 - July 26
    Times: 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
    Credit: Full year
    Instructor:  Mr. Behnam Amlashi
    Grade:
    10-12
    Fee: $2,000
     
    In this laboratory course, students study the principles and concepts of physical matter and change. The course includes mechanics, thermal physics, electricity and magnetism, waves and optics, and atomic and nuclear physics. The class emphasizes mathematical functions, problem solving, and laboratory investigations, as well as practical experience and application of these principles to everyday life. Prerequisite: completion of Algebra II and Chemistry.
