Textbook
Charles, R. I., & Pearson Education, Inc. (2012). Geometry: Common core. Boston, Mass: Pearson.

Course Description
This course covers the required concepts of Euclidean geometry including definitions, postulates, and
theorems. Throughout the course, Common Core standards are taught and reinforced as the student
learns how to apply the concepts in real life situations. Areas of study include tools and language of
geometry, reasoning and proof, parallel and perpendicular lines, congruent triangles, relationships within
triangles, polygons and quadrilaterals, similarity, right triangles and trigonometry, transformations, area,
surface area and volume, circles, and probability. Geometry Part I includes six multiple choice lesson
exams and a midterm written exam that will require the student to demonstrate understanding by showing
work. Geometry Part II includes six multiple choice lesson exams and a final written exam that will require
the student to demonstrate understanding by showing work, as well as a multiple choice comprehensive
final exam that covers parts I and II of Geometry.

Course Learning Objectives


Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

 Understand and use the tools and language of Geometry through the exploration of points, lines,
planes and angles.
 Understand, apply and use logical reasoning.
 Understand and apply the properties of parallel and perpendicular lines.
 Understand how special lines in triangles relate, and prove that two triangles are congruent.
 Understand and apply the properties of different types of polygons.
 Prove triangles are similar, and how to use the fact that two triangles are similar to find lengths of
sides, and find out how the sides of a right triangle are related.
 Perform transformations and apply them to the real world.
 Use and apply area formulas, and finding the surface areas and volumes of three-dimensional
figures.
 Apply theorems you learned in earlier chapters to segments touching circles.
 Use conditional probability, rules or probability, to use probability to make decisions
