The relationships between lines, points, and solids is studied as a mathematical system based on Euclidean geometry. Topics include the deductive methods of proof, geometric constructions, and the practical applications of plane and solid geometric principals. Connections between Algebra and Geometry will be explored and Algebra 1 skills will be reviewed. The goal of this course is to support students’ ability to:
Recognize and describe patterns in data and use that information to make conjectures
Use geometric symbols and properties to represent and analyze these relationships among both planar and three-dimensional figures
Develop inductive and deductive reasoning skills
Calculate measurements of plane and solid geometric figures
Know that physical measurements depend on the choice of a unit and that they are approximations.
Know and apply properties of geometric figures to solve real-world and mathematical problems and to logically justify results in geometry.
Solve real-world and mathematical geometric problems using algebraic methods.
