Geometry Honors (G-PAP)

The GT and Honors Courses emphasize logical thinking and its application in the informal justification and formal proof of conjectures.  Students solve problems by synthetic (traditional), coordinate, and/or transformational methods.  Problem solving applies the Algebra previously learned, emphasizes connections, and involves non-routine applications.  Students are expected to independently identify the appropriate techniques needed to complete their work.  Computer investigations allow and require independent thinking during class time.

Syllabus – a brief outline of the course, class expectations, and the Intervention plan.
