## The Fine Print

Course Goals

• Achieve proficiency in describing defined and undefined terms to visualize geometric concepts

• Use formulas to find midpoints, distances, and bisectors of lines

• Describe angle properties and relationships to determine characteristics of line

• Given a geometric figure, perform transformations, tessellations, and dilations on a coordinate plane

• Justify relationships of triangles through mathematical arguments using congruence postulates

• Justify properties of lines through mathematical arguments using angle theorems

• Understand and prove properties in order to classify polygons

• Use theorems and postulates to prove properties of circles

• Use inductive reasoning and logic to draw conclusions and formulate conjectures

• Use formulas to find the perimeter, area, and volume of 2D and 3D figures​

Topics Covered

• Relationships and properties of points, lines, planes and angles

• Properties of polygons including classification, measurements of sides and angles, perimeter, area, and volume

• Surface area of 3D shapes

• Properties of circles including circumference and measurements of parts of a circle including arcs, chords, angles and segments

• Inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning and logic to formulate proofs

• Transformations of figures including reflections, translations, rotations and dilations

• Relationships and properties of triangles including congruence, similarity, and classifications in order to construct proofs

• Trigonometry involving right triangles, the Triangle Inequality, The Pythagorean Theorem, The Law of Sines and The Law of Cosines

Prerequisites

• Students must have successfully completed Algebra 1 or Integrated Math 1.
