 Geometry Information

Proficiencies:

At the completion of the course the student should be able to:

• Experiment with transformations in the plane.

• Understand congruence in terms of rigid motions.

• Prove geometric theorems.

• Make geometric constructions.

• Understand similarity in terms of similarity transformations.

• Prove theorems involving similarity.

• Define trigonometric ratios and solve problems involving right triangles.
