Geometry

Geometry includes basic concepts of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry. The topics include perpendicular and parallel lines, attributes of polygons, congruency and similarity of geometric figures, constructions with compass and straightedge, ratio and proportion, areas and volumes of plane and solid figures, relationships among angles, arcs and segments related to circles and spheres, and demonstrations using geometric software. Algebra skills will be continually reviewed and reinforced throughout the course of study.

Prerequisite: Algebra I 

Pace – New sections are covered, on average, every 1-2 days. Students are
   expected to read the text in conjunction with class instruction.
Depth – Concepts are aligned with the TEKS and expanded with AHISD
   expectations, in order to achieve the level of math proficiency necessary for
   college and career readiness. Students are expected to justify their work as
   appropriate for the topic being covered.
Assessment – Comprehensive tests are given, on average, every 2-3 weeks.
   Additional assessments may also include projects, quizzes and other
   formative assessments.
Homework – Students are assigned 20-30 minutes of homework 3-5 times a
   week (for an average of 120 minutes per week) to reinforce and enrich
   classroom concepts, with the expectation that they will spend some time
   studying for Geometry each evening.
