Hello students and parents, thanks for visiting my new site.
Students are introduced to a variety of precisely-stated vocabulary including basic definitions, theorems and postulates and incorporate such vocabulary into problem-solving. Other units include types of geometries, conditional statements, congruence, similarity, parallelism, perpendicularity, graphing, angles, quadrilaterals, triangles, polygons, circles and three- dimensional solids and surfaces. A scientific calculator is required.
Geometry Honors is a rigorous program designed to meet the needs of highly self-motivated students who accelerate in mathematics. It is expected that students have the goal of taking Calculus as eleventh or twelfth graders. The honors geometry course introduces students to a more in-depth look at planes, three- dimensional objects and similarity. Emphasis in this course is on, writing, critical-thinking, problem-solving and participation in cooperative activities. A scientific calculator is required.
Probability & Statistics
This course explores the use of probability and the collection and analysis of data, inferences and conclusions. Statistical analysis is useful in every single academic discipline and virtually every job you’ll ever have. An understanding of basic statistics helps you make decisions about where to live, how to use your time and money and how to evaluate the information around you. This course will focus on topics in statistics with an emphasis on their practical applications in social media, sports, medicine, research, and practically any field that interests you.
Just a glimpse of the few projects we will be working on during the course of the year!

Why do we need to learn MATH?
Time and time again, students will ask, "Why do we need to learn this [math]?" Over the course of the year, you will learn all the many ways that Math is necessary in our daily lives.
