     Course Objectives:  This course is designed for students who have successfully completed Algebra 1.  Students will use deductive and inductive methods of proofs to justify theorems and tell whether conclusions are valid.  Students will use two- and three-dimensional reasoning skills, coordinate and transformational geometry and geometric models to solve problems.  Students will use a variety of applications and problem-solving techniques and must also use algebraic skills.

     Resources

    Textbook:  2015 Holt McDougal Geometry

    Online Access:  PDF files on other page of my link.

    Graphing Calculators will be used during this course.  Students will need to have a scientific calculator for homework or they may choose to download the Desmos calculator for class and home use.

     

    Students will be graded on the following criteria with approximate percentages:

    Tests

    Quizzes

    Graded Worksheets

    Projects

    Homework /Participation

     

    Major Assignments are 50%

    Minor Assignments are 40%

    Participation is 10%

    Grades are determined using a total point system and the Augusta County grading Scale below.
