This course will include a study of the basic properties of plane figures. Areas of study will include lines, planes, angles, polygons, transformations, proof, congruence and applications, size and similarity transformations, circles, areas and perimeters, surface area and volume.
Students will use inductive reasoning for pattern identification and then prove/disprove the statement using a deductive process. Effective communication, both verbally and in written form, will be emphasized throughout the course.

Each lesson will be based directly on Common Core State Standard. Students will be able to:
· Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
· Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
· Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
· Model with Mathematics
· Use Appropriate Tools Strategically.
· Attend to precision.
· Look for and make use of structure.
· Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
