We were presented with the opportunity to completely redesign our geometry program at our independent school. Honors and regular students are combined in each classroom, strengthening the education for students of all ability levels and backgrounds. Students are able to approach honors level material on a ‘challenge by choice’ basis, enabling many who would not have been originally enrolled in an advanced course to earn credit for Honors Geometry throughout the course of the year. Our goal is to achieve a more equitable program by providing advanced material to all levels of students.
Technology integration is key to this program. Using intelligent software that allows for more personalization gives us as teachers more time to focus on the students requiring additional assistance or greater challenges. Our flexible classroom design encourages students to use a variety of different learning styles to master the material. As students fulfill objectives, they have the choice to change their learning environment based on the requirements of their next objective. 
In this session, we will discuss the redesign process we went through with our curriculum and the project we led our students through to renovate our classroom. We will also address the honors integration and the personalization of the course.
