Geometry (1st Period)
The 8th-grade math Geometry program emphasizes abstract mathematical concepts and their applications. Students begin this course by mastering basic concepts such as points, lines, angles, and planes. Then they progress to explore the relationships among these concepts, such as parallel vs. perpendicular lines, congruence, similarity, and inequalities. Throughout the course, students learn to apply various postulates, theorems, and definitions to form proofs. The curriculum familiarizes students with all the geometric techniques necessary for higher-level mathematics. Successful completion of Geometry will allow students to begin high school with Algebra 2.
