Course Description

  • The general objective of this class is to improve the students’ problem solving ability, using a set standard of materials to reason through, and then logically find step by step solutions to more complex exercises. Students will use formulas for problem solving in plane geometrical figures. Students will discover and make conjectures about geometry. In general students will be introduced to and use the tools of geometry, learn line, angle, triangle, polygon and circle properties, area, Pythagorean theorem, volume, similarity, trigonometry and geometric proof.  

    Prerequisite: Algebra I
