About this course:
Common Core Geometry will culminate with a Regents Exam in June that will count as one-fifth of the course grade. This course will also fulfill the second year of a three year math graduation requirement. Students who desire to achieve an Advanced Regents Diploma must complete and pass three years of Regents Math Exams (Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II).
The following is the sequence that will be covered throughout the year using the Geometry modules aligned with New York Sate’s learning standards:
Module 1: Congruence, Proof, and Constructions
Module 2: Similarity, Proof, and Trigonometry
Module 3: Extending to Three Dimensions
Module 4: Connecting Algebra and Geometry through Coordinates
Module 5: Circles with and without Coordinates
