Course Overview


    This course is designed to emphasize the study of the properties and applications of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions.  In Geometry we include the study and structures of points, segments, triangles (including right triangle trigonometry), other polygons, circles and solid figures.  In the course, students work on finding the surface areas, volumes, congruence, similarity, and transformations.  The use of coordinate Geometry is also introduced.  Inductive and deductive thinking skills are used to solve geometric as well as real world problems.  A scientific calculator is also needed.  Algebra I skills are needed throughout the course; successful completion of Algebra I is a prerequisite to taking Geometry.  Students who successfully complete Geometry move on to Algebra II.
