This course develops an appreciation of an axiomatic system through the observation of patterns. The exploration of these patterns, whether in a plane or in space, allows the student to make conjectures about geometry which can then be proven deductively. The techniques and skills learned in Algebra I are integrated throughout the course in order to reinforce the skills previously learned and to enhance the study of geometry as part of a mathematical sequence. Students study properties and relationships having to do with size, shape, location, direction and orientation of figures. Geometry students solve meaningful problems using geometric ideas, relationships and properties. Topics include plane, coordinate and transformational geometry as well as reasoning, justification and proof. A variety of problems will be used to challenge an advanced mathematics student.
