Geometry is available as both regular and honors. The honors course is a bit more rigorous and goes deeper into the material with more complex examples. The geometry course is vast and covers several topics including points, lines, planes, and angles; deductive reasoning; parallel lines and planes; congruent triangles; quadrilaterals; inequalities in geometry; similar polygons; right triangles; circles; constructions and loci; areas of plane figures; areas and volumes of solids; coordinate geometry; transformations; and an introduction to trigonometry. The entire course covers a full year of Geometry and expects students to come prepared for each class session by reviewing materials from the previous sessions. There is an emphasis on theorems, proofs, and the application of concepts. Successful completion of Honors Geometry is required for admission to most colleges. Students registered for this course should have completed Algebra I successfully. Geometry is a prerequisite for Algebra II.
