Geometry

The units we will cover this year are:

  • Chapter 1:  Introducing Geometry (vocabulary, properties of polygons, circles)
  • Chapter 2:  Reasoning in Geometry (reasoning, proofs, angle relationships)
  • Chapter 3:  Using Tools of Geometry (constructions)
  • Chapter 4:  Discovering and Proving Triangle Properties (proving triangle congruence)
  • Chapter 5:  Discovering and Proving Polygon Properties (properties of polygons, kites, trapezoids, parallelograms, and their midsegments)
  • Chapter 6:  Discovering and Proving Circle Properties (chords, arcs, angles, and arc lengths)
  • Chapter 7:  Transformations and Tessellations
  • Chapter 8:  Area (finding areas of rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids, kites, regular polygons, and circles)
  • Chapter 9:  The Pythagorean Theorem (right triangles, isosceles right triangles, 30-60-90 triangles, distance formula)
  • Chapter 10:  Volume (volume of prisms cylinders, pyramids, cones, spheres)
  • Chapter 11:  Similarity (similar polygons, similar triangles, and more)
  • Chapter 12:  Trigonometry (sine, cosine, tangent, Law of Cosines, Law of Sines)
  • Chapter 13:  Geometry as a Mathematical System (proofs)

We will be using "Cornell Notes" in our notebook.  The image below gives you an idea of what "Cornell Notes" would look like in a notebook.
