**Geometry Courses**

**(All Courses Above are Included in GPA)**

__Numerical Geometry L2__

MA222 - 1.0 CREDIT - YEAR LONG - GRADES 10-11

**Prerequisite:**

****Successful Completion of either Intermediate Algebra L2**OR**Algebra 1 L3

In this course, students study concepts of both plane and solid geometry and their applications to real-life situations. Similar polygons, parallel and perpendicular lines, perimeter and area of polygons and circles, and volume and surface area of solid figures are emphasized.

__Geometry L3__

MA131 - 1.0 CREDIT - YEAR LONG - GRADES 9-11

**Prerequisite:**

****C- or better in Algebra 1 L3;**OR**- Successful completion of Algebra 1 L4;
**OR** - C- or better in Grade 8 Algebra 1 Honors;
**OR** - A- or better in Intermediate Algebra L2
**AND**recommendation of current Math teacher

This course covers topics of both plane and solid geometry as specified by the state standards for Geometry. Emphasis is on lines, angles, polygons, parallel and perpendicular lines, congruence, similarity, and circles. Elementary coordinate geometry, trigonometry, and proofs are introduced. This course relies heavily on solid Algebra 1 skills.

__Geometry L4__

MA140 - 1.0 CREDIT - YEAR LONG - GRADES 9-10

**Prerequisite:**

- B- or better in Algebra 1 L4;
**OR** - Recommendation of current Algebra 1 teacher
**AND**either: B- or better in Grade 8 Algebra I Honors,**OR**A or better in Algebra 1 L3

This course develops the same topics as those studied in Geometry, but in greater depth. Students are expected to discuss, analyze, and inter-relate geometric concepts. The focus in the Honors class is on deductive reasoning, with specific emphasis placed on writing formal proofs.

__Geometry L5__

MA151 - 1.0 CREDIT - YEAR LONG - GRADES 9-10

**Prerequisite:**

- Year average of 95 or better in Algebra 1 L4;
**OR** - A or better in Grade 8 Algebra 1 Honors
**AND**recommendation of Grade 8 Math teacher

This course develops the same topics as those studied in Geometry Honors. Students explore many of these concepts to a greater depth, and are expected to exhibit proficiency in writing proofs. Additional topics covered in the class include formal logic, mappings, and points of concurrency in a triangle. A large amount of work will be expected outside of class.
