Of course this class is filled with discussion of point, line, plane, area and volume, but the student will be amazed that triangles and circles contain so much information! The student will tackle the infamous geometric proof and learn deductive reasoning in the process. Normally a favorite of the student, the exploration of parallel lines and their resulting angles will develop visual skills and reinforce algebraic skills. A pronounced understanding of the Pythagorean Theorem will be developed during portions of this course. Construction using a protractor and compass is sprinkled throughout the year. Students must possess a scientific calculator.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra I.
