HOW TO STUDY A GEOMETRY PROPOSITION

Classical Liberal Arts Academy Logo

In Classical Geometry, students must learn how to study Propositions.  To do this, they must understand the parts of propositions and how propositions work.  THE ELEMENTS OF GEOMETRY We see that the title of the classic text on the art of Geometry is Euclid’s “Elements”.  When we begin this study, we find three sets of information provided by Euclid: Definitions Postulates Common Notions, or “Axioms” These are the “elements” from which the art of Geometry is constructed.  Every point we learn about the science of “magnitudes at rest”, will be proven from these definitions, postulates and axioms.  It is recommended … Continue

In managing the work of the Classical Liberal Arts Academy, I am constantly tormented by questions about HOW we should deliver content to students. Thankfully, for us, the question of WHAT is settled, but the question of HOW is a practical challenge that depends on many factors outside of our control.

I would love to run a print-based study program, but I don’t believe that it … Continue

Classical Mythology: Mars

Study Classical Mythology in the Classical Liberal Arts Academy

The Image and Descent of Mars Mars is fierce and sour in his aspect; terror is every where in his looks, as well as in his dress; he sits in a chariot drawn by a pair of horses, which are driven by a distracted woman; he is covered with armour, and brandishes a spear in his right hand, as though he breathed fire and death, and threatened every body with ruin and destruction. Mars, the god of war, who is often seen on horse back, in a formidable manner, with a whip and a spear together. The dog was consecrated … Continue
