### Hello students and parents, thanks for visiting my new site.

**Geometry **

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.

**Honors Geometry**

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.

**ALGEBRA II HONORS**

Algebra II Honors is the second course in the honors level mathematics program. It is designed to meet the needs of the students who have accelerated in mathematics through an in- depth instructional approach. Topics covered in the course include, but are not limited to, functions, solving and graphing linear, polynomial, quadratic and variation equations, lines, slope, matrices, real and imaginary number systems, mathematical modeling, exponents, logarithms and trigonometry.** A TI-83+ or better graphing calculator is required.**

## Geometry Projects

## 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.
