This proof-based course covers the required concepts of Euclidean geometry including definitions, postulates, and theorems.  Areas of study include angles, parallel lines, congruent and similar triangles, polygons, circles and arcs, and area and volume.  Special topics covered include coordinate geometry, introductory trigonometry, and constructions. The goal of this course is to present students with

  • Comprehensive topic coverage and balanced treatment of these aspects of geometry: theory and application; informal and formal reasoning; symbolic and visual thinking; synthetic, coordinate, and transformational methods
  • Introduction and development of principles of logical reasoning
  • Usage of real-life applications to illustrate geometric concepts.
  • Integration of algebra concepts and skills throughout the course.
