NCHS Math Department: Mr. Chris Tournas
Grade: 9 - 10
Duration: 2 Semesters
Prerequisite: Algebra l and teacher recommendation
Credit: 0.5 per semester
Pacing in this course is faster than that of Geometry M2, and problems are more challenging and more abstract. As a result, more topics will be covered in M3 than in M2, and some topics will be explored in greater depth than in M2.This is a rigorous course in which students will study methods of reasoning and deductive proof, as well as basic axioms and theorems of Euclidean geometry. Students will reinforce algebra skills through geometric problem-solving, and they will investigate properties of plane figures using computer software and other geometric tools.
