GEOMETRY CP
  
Mr. Liston and myself co-teach this college-prep class together.  We emphasize the following topics in order to prepare students for Bridge to Algebra 2, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, college, and life in the work force.  

Students will be provided with an opportunity to work with the tools of geometry and their creative powers to discover the geometric relationships of patterns, congruence, similarity, parallelism, area, volume, transformations, polygons, polyhedra, circles, and spheres.  Students will work with both inductive and deductive reasoning.  As students understand the informal and inductive development of geometric concepts, deductive proofs will be introduced.
Course Objective: Students will strengthen their problem solving skills towards mathematical and real-life problems.  Students will understand geometric relationships of patterns, shapes, and reasoning.  
Course Text: Discovering Geometry
