Geometry

By studying geometry  students  learn to see relationships and patterns in the world around them and to use proof to establish the validity of their observations.  Course topics include points, lines, angles, parallel lines, congruence, polygons, triangles, circles, three-dimensional solids, areas and volume, similarity, and right triangle trigonometry.  Transformations,  coordinate geometry, and the Geometer’s Sketchpad are tools that will be used in investigating figures.  Emphasis is placed on applications of geometry and developing the ideas of justification and proof.  A TI-83/84 Plus calculator is required.
