COURSE DESCRIPTION

Geometry
Grades 10-11
2 credits
Prerequisite: Algebra 1

Euclidean geometry involves the development of a logical, deductive system through establishment of rules of argument, definitions, postulates, and theorems. The concept of deductive proof is introduced early in the course and is fully developed as the course progresses. Topics include congruent and similar figures, perpendicular and parallel lines, polygons (with an emphasis on triangles and quadrilaterals), circles, areas, and volumes. The main emphasis of the course is on plane geometry, but some aspects of solid geometry are included. Throughout the course, algebra is used extensively to solve geometric problems.
