Course Description:
This accelerated course covers a deductive system of mathematics that is introduced through the use of definitions, postulates, and theorems used in the study of geometric figures in a plane including lines, polygons, and circles. The topics of trigonometry, area, surface area, volume, and trigonometry are included in the course work at a greater depth than College Preparatory Geometry. Algebra applications, such as solving equations and factoring polynomials, are interwoven into the curriculum, as well as mechanical construction skills using the compass and protractor. Students who complete Algebra 1 and this course will be prepared for Algebra 2 Honors.
