Geometry

Geometry

Geometry presents a logical development of the basic concepts and understanding of Euclidean geometry and coordinate geometry. Concepts and skills involve deductive reasoning taught through the use of direct and indirect proofs, angles, parallel lines, triangles, proving triangles congruent, special right triangles, the Pythagorean Theorem, polygons, circles, area, volume, coordinate geometry, constructions and transformations.
