Course Descriptions

Quarter 2 starts November 10. Confirmed enrollments will be accepted through November 27--the sooner the better.

In this course, students will regularly use The Geometer's Sketchpad software to explore geometric concepts and make discoveries.  Additional practice with geometric properties and theorems will be provided through our online textbook, worksheets, and online games.  You will apply the geometry skills you learn to a variety of situations and problem types.

Topics covered include geometric vocabulary, angle pairs, coordinate geometry, parallel and perpendicular lines, triangle properties, congruent triangles, proofs, polygons and quadrilaterals, similarity, Pythagorean Theorem and trigonometry, area and perimeter of 2 dimensional shapes, surface area and volume of 3 dimensional shapes, properties of circles and transformational geometry.

Course materials:   The Geometer's Sketchpad software; Holt McDougal Geometry, online text, online readings from a variety of sources; teacher created notes, videos and tutorials.
