Geometry

This course focuses on the study of visual patterns and the use of geometry to describe the physical universe, to represent mathematical concepts, and to teach problem solving skills. Students utilize Inductive reasoning to discover patterns and make conjectures; and employ deductive reasoning to confirm conjectures through proof. Topics include measurement formulas; geometric and spatial visualization; drawing skills; properties of congruence, similarity, parallelism, and perpendicularity; different methods of proof; properties of plane and solid figures; and transformations. Geometry provides unifying concepts that are used throughout high school mathematics. TI-89 calculators are not allowed. Coursework is rigorous and relevant in preparation for End of Course (EOC) testing.
