Geometry

This course focuses on the theorems of Euclid, with some formal proofs, but an emphasis on the understanding of the concepts and properties of these theorems and an application to numerical and problem solving situations. After the study of triangle properties, students are introduced to the three basic trigonometric ratios and their application to real-life situations. Students work on problems involving two and three-dimensional objects and the calculation of area, surface area, and volume. Assessment includes daily homework, quizzes, tests, projects, investigations, and a final examination.
