    Objectives/Course Description GEOMETRY (9,10,11,12) 2 Credits/2 Semesters

    Geometry is a Math course involving measurement and dealing with shapes. Some of the concepts studied in elementary Algebra will be helpful to the student's understanding of Geometry. Geometry is valuable because of its wide variety of applications to other subjects such as astronomy, art and chemistry.  Through the use of logic and imagination, the student will examine the postulated structure of Euclidean Geometry.  Prerequisite: Passing Algebra with a C or better.
