9th - 12th Grade
Full Year: Credit - 1
Prerequisite: Challenge Algebra
Honors Geometry develops topics from plane EuclideanGeometry. Topics studied include parallel and perpendicular lines, congruent triangles, similarity, right triangles and trigonometry, quadrilaterals, transformations, circles, measurement of figures and solids. A major emphasis is placed on the development of critical thinking skills, both inductive (geometric pattern recognition) and deductive (formal proofs), and selected rules of inference used in the development of geometry as an axiomatic system. Algebraic techniques are utilized to further the understanding of geometry. Students will access the curriculum through Larson’s Geometry CCSS edition textbook. The TI-Nspire CX graphing calculator is used extensively for demonstrations, class activities and homework. It is strongly recommended that each student purchase a TI-Nspire CX graphing calculator.
