This full-year course addresses the critical areas of: congruence, proof, and constructions; similarity and trigonometry; circles; three-dimensional figures; and probability of compound events. Transformations and deductive reasoning are common threads throughout the course. Students build on their conceptual understanding of rigid transformations established in middle school as they formally define each and then, use them to prove theorems about lines, angles, and triangle congruency. Rigid transformations are also used to establish relationships between two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures. Students use their knowledge of proportional reasoning and dilations to develop a formal definition for similarity of figures. They apply their understanding of similarity to defining trigonometric ratios and radian measure. Students also make algebraic connections as they use coordinate algebra to verify properties of figures in the coordinate plane and write equations of parabolas and circles. Throughout the course, students investigate properties of figures, make conjectures, and prove theorems. Students demonstrate their reasoning by completing proofs in a variety of formats. The standards of mathematical practice are embedded throughout the course as students apply geometric concepts in modeling situations, make sense of problem situations, solve novel problems, reason abstractly, and think critically.

Student participation in this course is documented by the following:
- Student active time in course logged by the learning management system.
- Coursework submissions recorded by the learning management system.
- Documentation of course work completed week-by-week
- Academic-based communication between the student and virtual education teacher or learning coach and virtual education teacher.
- Documentation of course participation is recorded by Edgenuity
- The virtual education teacher verifies participation in the course 1-3 times a week.
- A contract outlining the expectation of the course is explained to the student and parent(s). Weekly course completion percentage expectations are outlined according to how much time the student has to complete the course. For Unit and Culminating tests, students are required to take the test in a proctored environment at school. Course work estimation is 50 hours of instruction per semester, not counting writing time and assignment completion time or quizzes and testing time.
