Geometry @ Congressional School
The Geometry is a mathematics course that is designed to give students a foundational view of the Euclidean study of measurement in the natural sciences. This course focuses on the development of problem-solving skills and the acquisition of mathematical vocabulary and symbols. Topics covered in the course are: reasoning and proof, lines and their relationships, triangles and their relationships, polygons and quadrilaterals, similarity, right triangles, properties of circles, properties of transformations, and area and volume. Students will both focus on the main topics of each unit and gain an appreciation for the structure of geometry; thus, developing more intuition of spatial visualization.
