•  11525     Geometry- Honors                          

    2 semesters, 1 credit per semester

    This is a challenging geometry course.  It is enriched and faster paced than the other geometry courses.  A strong emphasis will be placed on student inquiry and reasoning. Students will tackle challenging problems and complete in-depth investigations.  Geometric computer software will be used extensively and spreadsheets will be incorporated as a problem-solving tool.

      

     11302     Geometry - Deductive (A level)          

    2 semesters, 1 credit per semester

    This course takes geometry concepts studied in middle school to a higher level.  Topics include angles, lines, planes, and shapes.  Students will also study 3-dimensional solids and right triangle trigonometry. There is a strong emphasis on reasoning as students prove geometric properties. Students will use geometry software and spreadsheets. 

    Note: May be taken concurrently with 11303 Algebra 2 with teacher recommendation or department chair permission, however, students interested in taking Algebra 2 and Geometry concurrently are encouraged to take the block class (11312 and 11313).

      

     11103     Geometry - Inductive (B level)             

    2 semesters, 1 credit per semester

    This course takes geometry concepts studied in middle school to a higher level.  Topics include angles, lines, planes, and shapes.  Students will also study 3-dimensional solids and right triangle trigonometry. There is less emphasis on formal proof than in course 11302. There is a greater emphasis on real applications.  This course is not open to any student who took algebra in 8th grade.  Those students should take the more rigorous 11302 or 11525.  Students will use geometry software and spreadsheets.

    Note: May be taken concurrently with 11301 Algebra 1 by upper classmen with teacher recommendation or department chair permission.  
     

     11313/11312     Geometry/ Algebra 2 Block                        

    2 semesters, 2 credits per semester (2 periods)

    This course provides an option for students who are “doubling up” in Geometry and Algebra 2. Geometry is completed during the first semester and Algebra 2 Is completed during the second semester.  This class takes two periods each semester. The reason for “doubling up” is to prepare students beginning with Algebra 1 freshman year to take an AP or dual credit math elective during their senior year. This plan requires strong math skills and interest in mathematics.  It also requires good study skills. The curriculum is identical to 11302 Geometry and 11303 Algebra 2.  A TI83+ or TI84 graphing calculator will be required for second semester.

    Note: May be taken grade 9 with department chair approval.
