The mathematics learning experience in Geometry centers on Reasoning and Logic, Two and Three-Dimensional Shapes including Circles, and Right Triangle Trigonometry.  Students have been introduced to most common of these topics as early as 4th grade but mainly in 7th grade and Pre-Algebra.  Students in this course will extend their knowledge about basic shapes of finding surface area and volume of uncommonfigures to include logical reasoning, problem-based activities, and the use of trigonometric ratios. Real world applications and problem-solving strategies will be integrated throughout the course.

    The following is the content that will be covered in PreAP Geometry.
