Course Syllabus(For Reference Only)

Students study Geometry as a mathematical system through the deductive development of relationships in the plane and space developed intuitively in previous years. Course content includes congruent segments and angles, circle chords, secants and tangent segments, parallel and perpendicular lines, angle measure in triangles, direct and indirect triangle congruence and similarity, proofs, solids of revolution, logic, similar triangles, transformations, the Pythagorean Theorem, geometric constructions, coordinate geometry, and surface area and volume of solids. As a result of the increased rigor of the Honors course, students are required to demonstrate advanced skills in thinking logically and intuitively while exhibiting evidence of divergent and creative thinking in mathematics. Topics are covered more in depth in comparison to the regular course and instruction is delivered at a faster pace.
