Description: This class will provide a thorough study of geometry concepts at the high school level. Topics covered will include lines, planes, angles, polygons, circles, perimeter and area analysis, volume and surface area analysis, similarity and congruence, deductive and inductive reasoning, application of postulates and theorems, and more. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills as they relate to logical reasoning. The class will meet once a week for 90 minutes. Since class time is limited, students will occasionally be required to watch a video lesson outside of class to prepare for in-class instruction.
Students joining a math class at Bridge Academy for the first time will be required to take a placement test before securing their registration in a specific math class for the 2022/2023 school year.
