Welcome to Geometry. We are going to start with a dimensionless, infinitesimally small point and grow to beyond the stars. This may be different than other math classes you’ve had before. We’ll be working with logic and shapes. And, of course, we’ll be doing algebra and numbers along the way too. Welcome!
The course has an emphasis on problem solving and applications of geometry. Topics include logic, perpendicular and parallel lines, similar and congruent triangles, and polygons. Later topics include trigonometry, circles, area, volume, graphing equations and proofs.
- Inexpensive calculator that can do trigonometric functions (sin, cos, tan). Your phone is acceptable and there is a calculator built into most of the online assignments. You may also use the TI-84 Plus chromebook extension.
- Notebook/Journal for recording notes and calculations
- Graph paper, which may be part of the notebook
- Pencil and eraser
- Straightedge (ruler)
- Graphing calculator. Recommended models are the TI-84 Plus CE or TI-84 Plus. (TI-NSPIRE and TI-92 are not allowed in this course.)
