**Course Description:**

*Geometry*is the branch of mathematics that deals with the measurement, properties and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids. The word means (geo) earth and (metry) measure. Geometry also deals with logic. Using inductive and deductive reasoning is 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 of geometry will be evident throughout the course.

If a paper is turned in late, the highest grade that can be made on that paper is a 70. Assignments cannot be turned in more than one day late.
