Geometry is an extension of algebraic principles to systems of lines and two or three-dimensional figures of coordinate planes and space. It is also an analysis of the logical relationships for these systems and figures in both coordinate and non-coordinate representations. This course provides practical solutions to problems of measurement and relationships while forming a foundation for advanced mathematics. The use of technology in the form of computer software, graphing calculators and audio-visual materials is strongly encouraged.
The Geometry course is designed for the student who has mastered the elementary mathematics outcomes for the 13 year-old class, the essential outcomes of the Algebra course, and the exit outcomes of elementary English. Geometry is designed to be the second Secondary Mathematics course. Those students who have the necessary prerequisites in the 12/13 year-old classes may engage in this course and earn secondary credits.
