The Geometry Program
Students who enter this course should be able to solve linear equations and inequalities in a variety of forms, graph linear relations, identify rates of change, solve systems of equations, estimate radicals, apply the Pythagorean Theorem, calculate perimeters, areas and volumes, apply coordinate Geometry techniques and find measures of central tendencies.
The content has been carefully designed to provide students with an interconnectedness of concepts and skills. The course focuses on the definitions, postulates, and theorems of plane and solid geometry concerning parallel lines, angles, congruence, similarity, right triangles, special right triangles and trigonometry, areas, volumes, circles, coordinate and transformational geometry, and some ruler and compass constructions. Algebraic applications and real-world applications will be stressed, making the usage of Algebra 1 concepts imperative for student success in the course.
