Students will solidify their understanding of basic mathematic operations while beginning an understanding of the language of Algebra.
This is a high school level survey of plane and solid geometry (Euclidean). Emphasis is on building a deductive approach to mathematics; reasoning from undefined, defined terms, postulates and and properties, to theorems and their corollaries. Application of these geometric tools of thought are applied to lines, planes, triangles, quadrilaterals, similar and congruent polygons and to circles. Practical application to traditional determination of areas, surface areas, and volumes of solids, as well as using analytical (coordinant geometry) and transformational geometry are included.
