Geometry is a course required for graduation and course is aligned with the College and Career Ready Standards for Mathematics in High School. Throughout this course, students will build on middle grades geometric learning to explore more complex geometric situations and strengthen explanations of geometric relationships. Students learn to explore geometry from a transformational approach, starting with defining congruence as a series of rigid transformations that map one figure to another. Students also explore three-dimensional geometry and also connect geometry to algebra with analytic geometry. Through the content, students will build mathematical habits of mind as described by the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMPs).
Course Note: This course is part of a field test at Lejune HS only for SY18/19 and will allow students to complete a full credit in 18 weeks by meeting daily instead of every other day. In all other respects, it is the same as the non 4x4 version of the course.
