    Geometry is the second year of the district’s traditional mathematics sequence. Geometry includes the logical study of plane and solid figures, and the discovery of relationships of these figures through deductive and inductive reasoning. Students will study the geometric plane using points and lines, and then move through a rigorous triangle unit. Students will prove that triangles are congruent, and two triangles are similar. Following three sided shapes, students will study the characteristics of quadrilaterals and polygons, as well as, apply proportions and similarity theorems to similar polygons. Finally, students will study 3-D planes using polygons to create polyhedra to calculate the surface area and volume of solid figures

    In resource geometry we utlize the whole point system.  Many students suffer from test/anxiety when assessed, so the whole point grading makes it much easier to truly guage how a student is comprehending the curriculum.
