Geometry

Have fun with figures learning the basics of geometry. You’ll boost your problem-solving prowess by applying geometry concepts to calculate angles and intersecting lines, perimeters, polygons, area and volume, and more. You’ll learn about shapes and how to measure and divide them. Projects, labs, and interactive content will help you gain the geometric know-how you need to succeed. RECOMMENDED PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of Algebra I.
