The Geometry Program
Students who enter this course must have mastered Algebra 1 concepts and procedures in addition to having a basic understanding of Geometry and Statistics. They 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 mastery of Algebra 1 concepts imperative for student success in the course. Throughout the course there will also be an emphasis on proofs.To view the Geometry Curriculum Map, click here: Geometry Curriculum
