...Geometry is a very important subject because roughly 40% of ACT math and 30% of SAT math involves geometry. Geometry proofs, which are required study under the CA Common Core curriculum, are not tested on the ACT or SAT. However, students need to know the theorems and postulates well in order to excel in ACT and SAT math.

...I have personally taught this class a number of times. It is a wonderful introduction to proofs as well as foundational trigonometry that will set the stage for calculus and other deeper applied mathematics. While teaching at an international school in India I had the privilege of teaching Pre-Algebra for a number of years.

...In both cases, many of my students were... less than motivated. The Korean kids had been raised on a steady diet of rookie, 20-something foreign English teachers from a young age. They knew *exactly* how to exploit the weaknesses of this species, and were typically more interested in drawing cartoons, cell phone games, and wrestling each other than they were in learning English.
