Honors Geometry A
Students will learn about similarity, triangles and trigonometric ratios.
Semester A – is the study of the measurement of the world, with a focus on application of geometric concepts. What makes Geometry so engaging is the relationship of figures and measures to each other, and how these relationships can predict results in the world around us. Through real-world applications, the honors student sees how geometric reasoning provides insight into everyday life. The course begins with the tools needed in Geometry. From these foundations, the student explores the measure of line segments, angles, and two-dimensional figures. Students will learn about similarity, triangles and trigonometric ratios. Geometry A consists of six modules. Each module comprises of ten lessons for a total of 60 lessons in the course. Honors students are expected to complete several assignments within each module that demonstrate their knowledge of the applications of geometry.
