High School

Geometry is a full year, high school math course for the student who has successfully completed the prerequisite course, Algebra I. The course focuses on the skills and methods of linear, coordinate, and plane geometry. In it, students will gain solid experience with geometric calculations and coordinate plane graphing, methods of formal proof, and techniques of construction.

By the end of the course, students will be expected to do the following:

  • Understand defined terms, axioms, postulates, and
  • Apply rules of formal logic and construct proofs in two-column
  • Know how to solve for angles given parallels, perpendiculars, and
  • Demonstrate how to solve for sides and angles of triangles, quadrilaterals, and
  • Understand trigonometric ratios and know how to use them to solve for unknown sides and angles in given triangles as well as application word
  • Be able to determine arcs, chords, and sectors of
  • Calculate perimeter, area, and volume of figures and
  • Graph lines and determine slopes, midpoints, and
  • Make geometric constructions on
  • Represent results of motion geometry (translation, rotation, reflection, dilation).
