GEOMETRY CLASS INFORMATION
This course gives students experience with the language and principles of Euclidean geometry. Students study geometric proof, parallel and perpendicular lines, triangle congruence and similarity, intro to trigonometry, quadrilaterals, circles, area and volume. Students apply higher-level thinking strategies, and often display mastery through direct proofs. There is a strong emphasis on understanding rather than memorization, with frequent opportunities for students to practice and maintain skills while applying concepts in different scenarios. This course is extremely demanding, fast-paced, carefully developed, and encourages discussion and participation.
