Tutoring for Geometry is a team effort. You can go to any of the three Geometry teachers for assistance with notes/assignments and test reviews.

Course Description

Geometry is a course designed to develop critical thinking skills, problem solving, and application of algebraic skills to geometric situations. Students use coordinate, transformational and axiomatic approaches as well as spatial reasoning to develop an understanding of a variety of geometric concepts. Students apply formulas for distance, midpoint, perimeter, area, surface area and volume.

Prerequisite – Algebra I
