This course is designed to have students demonstrate the ability to use fundamental concepts of geometry including definitions, basic constructions, tools of geometry, and to recognize geometry as an axiomatic system.
Construct a tangent to a circle and measure angles formed by tangents.
Describe the theorems of chords and secants of circles.
Define a circle and related terms (e.g., arcs, semi-circles, inscribed angles).
Similar Polygons and the Pythagorean Theorem
Demonstrate the applications of the Pythagorean Theorem.
Construct proportional segments of polygons.
Apply the postulates and theorems of similar polygons.
Define ratio, proportion, and proportional segments.
Examine the properties of trapezoids.
Use the properties of special quadrilaterals (e.g., parallelogram, rectangles, squares, rhombus, and kite).
Apply the properties of parallelograms.
Describe the characteristics of a quadrilateral.
Parallel Lines and Polygons
Identify different types of polygons and their components.
Define parallel lines, transversals, and angles.
Use congruent and right triangles to prove statements and theorems.
Construct a triangle congruent to a given triangle.
Prove how triangles are congruent using geometric theorems.
Classify triangles by their sides and by their angles.
Foundations of Geometry
Formulate geometric proofs.
Describe segments, rays, and angles.
Identify points, lines, and planes.
Define deductive/inductive reasoning and proofs, and axiomatic systems.
