Geometry A

Geometry A

Description
This high school geometry course moves students from the basic principles of geometry through more advanced topics. Topics include logic and proof, parallel lines and polygons, perimeter and area analysis, volume and surface area analysis, similarity and congruence, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. Student will conduct an in-depth analysis of plane, solid and coordinate geometry as they relate to both abstract mathematical concepts as well as real-world problem situations. Emphasis of this course will be placed on developing critical thinking skills as they relate to logical reasoning and argument. Students learn through textbooks, videos, practice, investigations, and online interactives. Students will also use an online graphing calculator and complete quizzes and tests for each unit, a midterm and a final exam.

Precalculus / Trigonometry

Precalculus / Trigonometry

Description
This course reviews and expands on all of the topics covered in Algebra II. Approximately one-third of the course covers Trigonometry. Other topics include analytic geometry in three dimensions and limits. The objectives of this course are (1) to reinforce and strengthen the students’ math skills; (2) to better prepare the students to take placement tests like the SAT, ACT, and GRE; (3) to equip the students to pursue advanced math (Calculus); and (4) to give students confidence in solving real-life problems using mathematics. Some examples of these problems include: estimating future company earnings, determining production rates to minimize costs, estimating the age of charcoal using carbon dating, calculating angular speed of rotating machines, finding the height of an object without being able to directly measure the height, calculating the bearings of planes, finding the area of non-right angle triangles, encoding and decoding secret messages using code, calculating the number of distinct car license plate numbers in a state, calculating the probability a space vehicle’s backup system will fail, finding the tension in three ropes supporting a weight, and finding the instantaneous speed of a projectile.

Textbooks and Supply List
The textbook is Precalculus with Limits: A Graphing Approach 4th ed., Houghton Mifflin 2005 (author: Larson, Hostetler, Edwards).
ISBN: 9790-618-394-806
Books are available for purchase for $10 at KEYED UP on a first come basis (limited amounts).

Other items that will be required: graph paper for homework assignments, a protractor, a straight edge with a measurement scale, and a graphing calculator such as a TI-83 or 84.
