Semester 1 Geometry is a course in structured logic. Students learn theorems and postulates and then form problem-solving plans by which to solve or prove various geometric situations. During the first semester students receive an overview of Euclidean and analytical geometry, intersections of lines and planes, uses of postulates and theorems, properties of triangles, congruence of triangles, transformations, and similarity of figures.
Students study inductive and deductive reasoning, laws of logic, properties of polygons, properties of
right triangles, properties and components of circles, and areas and volumes of geometric figures and
solids. The ability to construct proofs continues to be stressed as the students’ problem-solving skills
