Geometry

Course MG 34| Mrs. Rita Talley

Juniors 1.0 Credit

An in-depth analysis of plane and solid geometry based on the fundamentals of Euclid are explored and examined through the descriptions, definitions, postulates, theorems, and corollaries. These concepts are used to prove lines are parallel or perpendicular; to prove the congruence and similarity of various polygons; to solve right triangles using both Pythagorean Theorem and right triangle trigonometry; to investigate and solve for parts of a circle; and to find the area of polygons and volumes of solids. The effects of various transformations on polygons are discussed in relation to congruent and similar polygons. Students will further develop critical thinking and reasoning skills by formulating two-column proofs as well as in various problem solving exercises using deductive and inductive reasoning. Skills mastered in Algebra I and II will be integrated into the coursework to facilitate the strengthening and reinforcement of these skills. An introduction to the trigonometric ratios in terms of the sides of a right triangle, radian measure of an angle, and the basic trigonometric functions in the context of the unit circle is included in the course of study. Review work for the PSAT and SAT is included in this course. Prerequisite: Students must have completed Algebra I and Algebra II.
