Description: 

Description: NOTE: GEOMETRY IS ONE OF THE COURSES REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENTS. The Geometry course builds on Algebra I concepts and increases students’ knowledge of shapes and their properties through geometry-based application, many of which are observable in aspects of everyday life. This knowledge helps develop visual and spatial sense and strong reasoning skills. The Geometry course requires students to make conjectures and to use reasoning to validate or negate these conjectures. The use of proofs and constructions is a valuable tool that enhances reasoning skills and enables students to better understand more complex mathematical concepts. Technology should be used to enhance students’ mathematical experience, not replace their reasoning abilities.
