Geometry (Prerequisite: Algebra 1)
The main goal of Geometry is for students to develop the structure of Euclidean geometry
logically and apply the resulting theorems and formulas to address meaningful problems.
Students will use experimentation and inductive reasoning to construct geometric
concepts, discover geometric relationships, and formulate conjectures. Students will
employ deductive logic to construct formal logical arguments and proofs. Students will
extend their pre-existing experiences with algebra and geometry to trigonometry and
coordinate geometry. Students will use dynamic geometry software, compass and
straightedge, and other tools to investigate and explore mathematical ideas and
relationships and develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations. Students
will apply mathematical skills and make meaningful connections to life’s experiences.
