This is the second of two courses that comprise Geometry. Throughout the course, the student will use virtual manipulatives and tools to explore area, surface area, and volume, and study the concept of similarity as it relates to various figures. The student will use Trigonometry and right triangle concepts, such as 30-60-90, 45-45-90, and the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems. The student will also be introduced to vectors and learn to solve problems involving magnitude and direction. In addition, the student will study transformation concepts, such as translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations as well as concepts associated with symmetry. The student will learn to use formulas to find the areas of a variety of two-dimensional shapes. This course concludes with an exploration of concepts related to circles, such as arcs, angles, and intersecting lines such as chords, secants, and tangents. Throughout the course, the student will learn concepts through a variety of instructional strategies, solve real-world applications, and complete an assortment of activities.
Geometry A is a prerequisite for this course.
