Learn the foundational skills of Geometry — including two- and three-dimensional shapes, lines, rays, and figures in a plane — and use deductive and analytical reasoning, logic, and problem solving with clear illustrations of all equations. Part 1 of 2.
This course dives deep into logical reasoning and critical thinking through proofs and constructions. Students will develop deductive reasoning strategies to understand lines, angles, polygons, and their transformations, as well as the cognitive skills necessary for logical thinking as young adults.
