Geometry

Course Description

Offering a hands-on approach to instruction, this is an interactive course designed to introduce the basics of geometry through engaging lectures and informative lesson plans. Students will be challenged to apply previously learned knowledge to higher-level ideas such as reasoning and proof, Geometric Relationships, and Logic. This informative two-semester course covers fundamentals of shapes, surface area and volume of shapes, transformations, as well as learning strategies that include writing, analyzing, and using proofs. High-school students will gain valuable, tangential knowledge of more complex concepts, such as Trigonometry.

Course Objectives

Throughout the course, you will meet the following goals:

  • Understand that there is more than one type of geometry and each is founded on a set of accepted truths
  • Use logic and proof to draw conclusions and verify statements
  • Use symbols and notation to represent geometric relationships
  • Analyze drawings and diagrams to establish geometric relationships and form logical conclusions
  • Model and solve real-world phenomena using geometric principles
  • Represent and verify geometric relationships in the rectangular coordinate system
  • Use set theory and geometric models to calculate probabilities and make informed decisions
