In this year-long Geometry course, students will cover topics over a two semester period (as designated by “A” and “B” sections). Students learn the language of geometry, area and perimeter, inductive and deductive reasoning, geometric construction, geometric proof, angle properties, properties of parallel and perpendicular lines, coordinate geometry, triangle congruence, properties of triangles, and properties of quadrilaterals. Students calculate perimeter, area, surface area, and volume; solving right triangles; similar triangles; transformations; circle theorems; and, the effect that change has on perimeter, area, and volume measurements.
All courses are written to California Department of Education
standards and to national standards, as applicable.
This course has also been updated to the Common Core Standards.
