# Geometry

Geometry will require students to explore complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Emphasis is placed on using deductive reasoning in the analysis of topics such as parallel lines, circles, polygon congruence, similarity, area, volume, and probability. Students receiving credit for this course cannot also receive math credit for Geometry Concepts or Geometry Honors.
