Grade 10-12. Placement required.
Geometry Essentials covers all the basic geometry concepts, using problem-solving through inductive and deductive reasoning, but with little emphasis on formal proofs. The course includes topics such as constructions, distance concepts, angles, triangles, geometric inequalities, parallel and perpendicular lines and planes, polygons, circles, and spatial figures and their properties. Right-triangle trigonometry is introduced. The Math Practice Standards are the foundation of lessons, teaching students how to reason and think mathematically. A graphing calculator, compass, and protractor are required.
