Course Number: 1206310

Pre-Requisites: Algebra I or its equivalent. Credits: 0.5 (per segment) – 1.00 Estimated Completion Time: 2 segments / 32-36 weeks (self-paced)

Description

One day in 2580 B.C.E., a very serious architect stood in a dusty desert with a set of plans. His plans called for creating a structure 480 feet tall, with a square base and triangular sides, using stone blocks weighing two tons each. The Pharaoh wanted the job done right. The better this architect understood geometry, the better his chances were for staying alive. 

Geometry is everywhere, not just in pyramids. Engineers use geometry to build highways and bridges. Artists use geometry to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on a geometric grid. Throughout this course, students travel a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem solving.

Florida public school students are required to take the Florida End of Course (EOC) exam. The EOC replaces the math portion of the FCAT. Local school districts administer the EOC for all students within their school zone. FLVS does not offer the EOC. Students should contact their guidance counselors or school testing administrators for further information.
