Geometry Course Overview

Welcome to Geometry! The roots of the word geometry mean “to measure the earth,” but this course will be more than just measuring things. It will emphasize abstract concepts and logical thinking through inductive and deductive reasoning. Through the course of the year, we will explore how lines, planes, polygons, circles, as well as spheres and other three-dimensional figures can be used to represent and solve a variety of abstract and real-world problems. We will use tools—from the basic, such as straightedges, compasses, and protractors, to the sophisticated, such as The Geometer’s Sketchpad and graphing calculators—to help us solve problems and learn. The skills you learned in Algebra I will be revisited, reinforced, and applied throughout the year. Our work in this course will help you understand how all fields of mathematics are intertwined and how they depend on each other. I am committed to working with you to help you understand geometry and discover its beauty.
