The structure of the physical world around us will be described and analyzed using theorems, definitions, and postulates. Problems will be solved using coordinate geometry, constructions, and/or algebraic techniques. The major topics of study include parallelism, congruent triangles, polygons, similarity, circles, transformations, and planar and space measurement. Students will explore two and three-dimensional shapes (and their properties) as well as developing logical thinking skills and using algebra in the physical world.
