Students will work through a variety of geometric situations that provide opportunities for the application of the skills to a real-world scenario. Cooperative learning is utilized in this course when students work together on more complex problem-solving situations. In addition to cooperative learning, the students will use the MATHia computer program which supports, enriches, and remediates students based on their individual needs. Projects are utilized throughout this course to enhance the student’s experience and learning. Topics covered during the year will include tools of geometry, parallel and perpendicular lines, perimeter and area, right triangle geometry, transformations, right triangle trigonometry, quadrilaterals, geometry in the coordinate plane, circles, volume and surface area, as well as similarity and congruence as time permits.
