Course Description
This course explores relations involving one, two and three-dimensional spaces: angles, parallel and perpendicular lines, planes, circles, triangles, triangle trigonometry, polygons, area, surface area and volume. The basics of logic are introduced and the deductive proof-writing process is developed throughout the course. Problem-solving skills from Algebra 1 will be used throughout the course. This course is self-paced for mastery with a strong emphasis on collaboration, connection-making and discovery.
 
Textbook
Digital textbook will be distributed at beginning of course. $15 fee will be to your total during online registration.
