In Geometry, students will develop reasoning and problem solving skills as they study topics such as congruence and similarity, and apply properties of lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles. Students will also develop problem solving skills by using length, perimeter, area, circumference, surface area, and volume to solve real-world problems and to promote higher-order thinking skills.
Geometry includes exercises in algebra, data analysis, and probability. These math topics often appear on standardized tests, so maintaining students’ familiarity with them is important.
Geometry is a subject that will require you to build a body of knowledge. Concepts learned in the beginning of the year will be used repeatedly throughout the year and your understanding of new concepts will depend on your grasp of previous concepts. It is essential that you concentrate each day and focus on the subject matter at hand in class and at home. To succeed in this course, you must exhibit a strong work ethic and you must accept responsibility for the material presented on a daily basis.
