This course follows generally the description of the traditional geometry course but also includes more proof (direct and indirect; in two-column, flow, and paragraph form). This course is designed for the student who successfully completed Algebra 1Acc as a freshman, but any student may apply.  Within the context of Geometry, the Accelerated course includes more challenging algebraic applications, such as solving quadratic equations.  It also includes an introduction to analytic geometry and trigonometry, helping to prepare students for Precalculus.  A Texas Instruments TI-83 or TI-84 series graphing calculator is required.
