*MA 32 Honors Geometry

Difficulty: High 2 Sem. — 1 Math Credit

Prerequisite: MA 27 and teacher recommendation

Mathematical practices and modeling with mathematics are embedded into standards for honors geometry to include the study of congruence, similarity, right triangles, and trigonometry, circles, expressing geometric properties with equations, and geometric measurement and dimension. Instructional time and learning focuses on six critical areas: (1) congruence, proof, and constructions; (2) similarity, proof and trigonometry; (3) extending to three dimensions; (4) connecting algebra and geometry through coordinates; (5) circles with and without coordinates; and (6) applications of probability. In addition, the curriculum includes rigorous proofs, algebraic representations of geometric concepts, transformational geometry and coordinate geometry. NOTE: This is a weighted course.
