This course covers classic Euclidean Geometry, with an emphasis on reasoning skills through proofs and the building of an axiomatic system. Topics include: deductive reasoning, points, lines, planes, rays, angles, congruent triangles, geometric inequalities, properties of parallel lines, quadrilaterals, isometries, area, similarity, right triangles and trigonometric ratios, properties of circles, regular polygons, geometric solids, and coordinate geometry. While algebra will not be explicitly taught, algebra review problems are included in most chapters and additional (optional) asynchronous videos and problems will be provided. A scientific calculator is recommended; the teacher will demonstrate using a TI-84. This is a full year course and is recommended for 10th grade students. Big River Math classes meet for 1 hour 2 times a week; please note this in your scheduling.
