Geometry 03100700 TX

Geometry is a full-year, high school credit course that is intended for the student who has successfully completed the prerequisite course, Algebra I. The course focuses on the skills and methods of linear, coordinate, and plane geometry. In it, students will gain solid experience with geometric calculations and coordinate plane graphing, methods of formal proof, and techniques of construction.

Upon successfully completing the course, the student should have mastered the following concepts:

  • Understand defined terms, axioms, postulates, and theories

  • Apply rules of formal logic and construct proofs in two-column format.

  • Know how to solve for angles given parallels, perpendiculars, and transversals.

  • Demonstrate how to solve for sides and angles of triangles, quadrilaterals, and polygons.

  • Be able to determine arcs, chords, and sectors of circles.

  • Calculate perimeter, area, and volume of figures and solids.

  • Graph lines and determine slopes, midpoints, and distances.

  • Determine the equation of a line or circle.

  • Make geometric constructions on paper.

  • Represent results of motion geometry (translation, rotation, reflection, dilation).

  • Understand trigonometric ratios and know how to use them to solve for unknown sides and angles in given triangles as well as application word problems.

  • Calculate simple probabilities using addition, multiplication, permutations, combinations, and frequency tables.
