# Geometry

This challenging course provides an NCTM approach to the study of properties of elementary proof, logic, angle relationships, perpendicular and parallel lines and planes, congruence, similarity, constructions, circles, areas, and coordinate geometry.  Students will apply their knowledge through course assignments that include writing, demonstrating, and projects.
