Full Year Course; 90 minutes

Advanced algebra ...

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. Primary instruction for Geometry is on Thursday mornings. An optional Tuesday add-on will be offered to students enrolled in this Thursday course. Students are encouraged to opt-in to the supplemental second day where they will receive additional instruction time to solidify weekly content, engage in guided problem-solving tasks, strengthen time management skills, and develop behaviors as defined by the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The optional add-on is offered both second and third periods on Tuesday. Students may enroll in either session.
