Quarter 4 begins April 5.
Confirmed enrollments accepted
through April 8--but sooner is much better!

This one-semester survey course introduces students to:

  • basic ideas about geometric shapes,
  • how we use numbers to define and describe them,
  • how they relate to one another

Students use The Geometer's Sketchpad software to explore geometric concepts and make discoveries. Topics covered include angles and angle relationships; parallel and perpendicular lines; transformations, symmetry and tessellations; coordinate geometry; triangle relationships; quadrilaterals; polygons and polyhedra; Pythagorean Theorem and special right triangles; circles; perimeter, area, and volume; congruent triangles and proofs; and similarity and trigonometry.

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

Standards met: This course meets all standards and benchmarks in the Geometry & Measurement strand of the Minnesota 2007 Math Standards for Grades 9-11.

Credit: 0.5

Honors Opportunity: No

Prerequisites: None—this course is particularly appropriate for students who do not have the time in their schedule for a full-year sequence. It is important, however, for students to consult with their counselor regarding number of math credits as the year-long Sketchpad Geometry A and B course may be a better option.
