This course provides an opportunity for students to explore geometric relationships. Students perform constructions, measure figures, observe patterns, discuss their findings, write their own definitions, and formulate and prove geometric conjectures. Topics include methods of reasoning; relations in Geometry; properties of lines, circles and angle, geometric transformations; similarities, applications and properties of triangles; transformations of the Euclidean plane and several concepts applicable in quadrilaterals.

**Note: This course is not designed for ELL (English Language Learners) students. ELL students may enroll in this course ONLY if they have adequate mentor support at their home school and are able to fulfill all course requirements.**
