Geometry

Instructor:
Jennifer Burris

Course Description:
Geometry focuses on the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, and solids. We will explore how these topics relate to the world around us.

Objectives:
Geometry will cover the following topics: reasoning and proof, parallel and perpendicular lines, congruent triangles, relationships within triangles, quadrilaterals, similarity, right triangles and trigonometry, transformations, area, surface area and volume, and circles.

The objectives of this course are directly related to the Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) and the Common Core State Standards, which come under the umbrella of all state standards entitled Oklahoma C3 Standards - C3 standing for college, career, and citizen ready. These are provided by the State Department of Education. If you are interested in reading them, I have a copy available or you can access them on the web at <http://www.corestandards.org/assets/CCSSI_Math%20Standards.pdf>
The course will provide the student with the requisite skills for a firm foundation of the study of advanced algebra and trigonometry.
