# Geometry | Honors Geometry The Fine Print

#### Course Goalsâ€‹

• 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 figuresâ€‹

â€‹

#### Topics Covered
