Geometry

What Will We Be Learning?

We will be studying points, lines, angles, planes, as well as 2-D and 3-D shapes. To do this, we must use formulas, protractors, and compasses to solve geometry problems. Often, algebra must be used to solve geometry problems. Geometry is a skill that will be important in Algebra II, as well as many careers. 

Careers that Require Geometry

Some careers that require geometry include cabinet making, die casting, industrial design, surveying, package design, and aerospace engineering. On average, these careers pay $17.50-$35.91 hourly.

What Standards Have We Covered?

HSG-CO.A.1 Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc.

HSG-CO.C.9 Prove theorems about lines and angles.

HSG-MG.A.1 Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects.

HSG-MG.A.3: Apply geometric methods to solve design problems.

HSG-GMD.A.1 Give an informal argument for the formulas for the circumference of a circle, area of circle, volume of a cylinder, pyramid, and cone.

HSG-GPE.B.7 Use coordinates to compute perimeters of polygons and areas of triangles and rectangles using the distance formula.
