Geometry forms the foundation for key concepts in advanced math courses. This course begins with traditional geometric topics including lines, angles, proofs, polygons, circles, and triangles. Students explore concepts directly through their own investigations, make and test conjectures about what they observe, and apply these conjectures to solve real-world problems and create new conjectures. Students use multiple and varied tools—from folded paper, to straightedge and compass, to interactive geometry software—for the investigations. Students will develop cooperation, problem-solving, spatial reasoning, and communication skills. Assessments include quizzes and tests, discussion prompts, and both group and individual projects. By the end of the course, students will have gained proficiency in logic, pattern recognition, spatial reasoning, and tech tools.
