Geometry Honors A, B

Honors Geometry focuses on: using coordinate geometry to connect geometric and algebraic relationships to develop concepts of

proof; applying the definition of congruence in terms of rigid transformations (translations, reflections, and rotations); applying

congruence shortcuts for triangles to prove properties of triangles and quadrilaterals; proving properties of circles; using area and

volume formulas in problem-solving situations; applying the Pythagorean Theorem, right triangle trigonometry, and properties of

similar triangles to calculate indirect measurements; using conditional probabilities to explore events of chance; and writing formal

proofs. Honors courses study the critical areas above with greater depth and extension topics that include transformations of graphs,

tessellations, additional properties of triangles and quadrilaterals, the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines, and the area and volumes

of similar figures.
