Geometry (2-credit Intensive)

Geometry formalizes and extends students’ geometric experiences. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Good thinking and study skills are necessary for success in Geometry. Geometry studies the relationships and properties of angles, lines, triangles and other polygons, circles, trigonometric ratios, planes, and spatial drawings. The use of deductive and inductive reasoning is stressed in the development of logic and reasoning used in proof.

Students who take Geometry (2-credit Intensive) through Global Campus will be exposed to a variety of investigative techniques, construction methods and various styles of writing proofs. Real-world applications of Geometry will be examined, and various technology resources will expand students’ understanding of Geometry. This version of Geometry is intended for students who plan to take Calculus as a Senior. Please view the prerequisite details for more information.
