Honors Geometry

In geometry, students learn to appreciate Euclidean geometry as a deductive system. Accordingly, the students study formal logic early in the course and use it throughout. Starting with undefined terms, postulates, and definitions, the students follow the progressive development of theorems to create a mathematical structure with rich aesthetic and practical value. In building this axiomatic structure, they improve their ability to recognize and organize the various relationships among points, lines, triangles, polygons, and circles in a plane. This course also includes the study of geometry with coordinates and the solid geometry of common shapes.



This course will start at 8:00am and end at 12:00pm.
