Geometry Part 2
Course Length: 1 Semester
Has Textbook: Yes
Geometry Part 2 investigates similarity, right triangles and trigonometry, transformations, area, surface area, volume, and circles. A main purpose of the study of geometry is the development of reasoning ability. Geometry Part 2 emphasizes this focus through the use of technology, problem solving, and critical thinking.
It is recommended that students successfully complete Geometry Part 1 or equivalent course work before enrolling in this course.
