This course is a foundational course focused on the geometry of shapes, planes and space. Emphasis is placed on understanding, applying, justifying, and developing geometric properties in two and three dimensions. Students will engage in an in depth study of geometric reasoning, coordinate geometry, parallel and perpendicular lines, triangle congruence, properties of polygons and circles, similarity, right triangle trigonometry, area, and volume. Students will apply this learning to solve real-world mathematical problems. This course prepares students to be mathematically literate, as well as prepare them for future math courses, the high school MN Math Standards, and MN standardized math tests.
