Student Learning Objectives
In this course you will be asked to:
1. Utilize information methods such as dot paper constructions, folding, and tracing to determine facts and relationships;
2. Study and develop fundamental ideas of Euclidean geometry based on measurement, parallelness and congruence;
3. Perform basic Euclidean constructions using traditional tools and the MiraTM;
4. Develop a system of facts and relationships concerning triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons;
5. Develop a system of facts and relationships concerning circles and circle parts;
6. Study and develop a system of facts and relationships concerning the measurement of length, area, surface area, and the Pythgorean Theorem;
7. Perform standard geometric constructions using The Geometer's SketchPadTM;
8. Develop an appreciation of formal deductive reasoning through pattern description, inductive reasoning, and the formulation of conjectures.
