Geometry

  • 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.

    REQUIRED SUPPLIES:

    • Pencil, eraser, notebook paper, and occasionally graph paper
    • Inexpensive scientific calculator which has sin, cos, and tan functions
    • Protractor, compass, and ruler (“straightedge”)

    Optional:

    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.)
