Geometry Courses

Geometry (to be replaced by Integrated Math 2 in 2020-2021)

  • Length/credit: 1 year - 1.0 credit
  • Grade(s): 9, 10, 11, 12
  • Prerequisite: Successful completion of Algebra 1
  • Course Number: 03020202

This course emphasizes deductive reasoning. It will include the following topics: congruency, parallelism, similarity, circles, constructions, areas and volumes with emphasis placed upon problem solving, original proofs, reasoning, and probability. Other topics include coordinate geometry and trigonometry.

Integrated Math 2 (to replace Geometry in 2020-2021)

  • Length/credit: 1 year - 1.0 credit
  • Grade(s): 9, 10, 11, 12
  • Prerequisite: Successful completion of Integrated Math 1
  • Course Number: 03150202

This course is the second in a series of three integrated math courses and is designed to develop an intermediate understanding of the principles of Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics. Students will connect and extend topics from Integrated Math 1 and be introduced to Quadratic Functions, Similarity and Congruence, Circles, Basic Trigonometric Functions and Probability. Students will experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that draws on their ability to make sense of problem situations, and will further develop the ability to explore and solve mathematical problems, think critically, work cooperatively with other students, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly.

Geometry H (to be replaced by Integrated Math 2 H in 2020-2021)

Honors Course Symbol
  • Length/credit: 1 year - 1.0 credit
  • Grade(s): 9, 10, 11, 12
  • Prerequisite: It is recommended that students have a grade of “A” or “B” on assessments in Algebra 1
  • Course Number: 03020303

This course employs the axiomatic development of geometry. Deductive proofs are emphasized. Topics include indirect reasoning, probability, congruency, parallelism, perpendicularity and similarity. In addition, students will study plane figures such as triangles, quadrilaterals and other polygons and circles, and solid shapes such as spheres, cylinders, pyramids, prisms and cones. The course continues with coordinate geometry, triangle trigonometry, area and volume. Although a graphing calculator is not required, one is recommended.

Integrated Math 2 H (to replace Geometry H in 2020-2021)

Honors Course Symbol
  • Length/credit: 1 year - 1.0 credit
  • Grade(s): 9, 10, 11, 12
  • Prerequisite: Recommended “A” or “B” on assessments in Integrated Math 1
  • Course Number: 03150403

This course is a faster-paced version of the second in a series of three integrated math courses and is designed to develop an intermediate understanding of the principles of Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics. Students will connect and extend topics from Integrated Math 1 and be introduced to Quadratic Functions, Similarity and Congruence, Circles, Basic Trigonometric Functions and Probability. This version of the course will delve significantly deeper into the various topics and includes additional extension topics that are not part of the college preparatory version of Integrated Math 2. Students will experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that draws on their ability to make sense of problem situations, and will further develop the ability to explore and solve mathematical problems, think critically, work cooperatively with other students, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly.
