Advanced Geometry integrates a traditional deductive approach with an inductive approach and an emphasis on problem solving skills. Students discover and apply the properties of transformation, congruence, similarity, and trigonometry to solve problems about triangles and other figures. Additional topics include: circle theorems, coordinate geometry, conic sections, vectors, geometric measurement, and probability. Throughout the course, students will create two-column proofs such as creating algebraic expressions, identifying functions, graphing and solving linear equations, simplifying radicals and exponents, factoring, graphic and solving linear equations, simplifying radicals and exponents, factoring, graphing and solving quadratic equations, and solving systems of equations. Students who are successful in this course will be prepared to take Advanced Algebra II. A TI-84 or N-Spire CX CAS calculator is required for this course. Prerequisites: Algebra I with a minimum grade of B+ and teacher recommendation based on other data points
