Accelerated Geometry

  • 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 for the high school MN Math Standards and MN standardized math tests. The distinction between this course and Geometry is the pacing and depth at which the above content is covered.
