Prerequisites: Algebra 1B+ or equivalent with a overall year grade of A- or better
Geometry+ is a problem-based course intended for students of strong ability and dedicated interest in mathematics. Students will study constructions as a foundation for further study, then move on to the deductive process of proof writing. Topics of interest include quadrilaterals, right triangles, congruent and similar figures, connections between equations and shapes, area and perimeter, volume, and the segment and angle relationships of circles. Students will explore more challenging problems, and in several areas the coverage will be more thorough and include more depth than the regular course. Through daily collaboration, students will develop their understanding of concepts as well as their ability to reason mathematically by solving problems that continually build on prior knowledge. Throughout the course, students make extensive use of coordinate representations to support the retention of skills from Algebra I.
