Brian prepared this syllabus for Geometry by Bob Jones Press. However, the document provides a wealth of ideas and structure for any high school geometry class.
Geometry, as the name suggests literally means earth – measure. This branch of mathematics deals with the measurements, properties, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids. Geometry also deals with logic, using inductive and deductive reasoning as an integral part of geometric thinking. Geometry is closely connected to other branches of mathematics such as Algebra, Logic, Probability, and Trigonometry. Real life applications as well as a brief glimpse into the history of geometry will be evident throughout the course, we will also devote some study to formal proofs and recreational mathematics.
