In Geometry, students will solve problems about objects and shapes in two- and three-dimensions, and apply properties of basic geometric figures to solve problems that arise in the workplace, society, and everyday life. Students will create and analyze the mathematical representations used in the modeling process. Students will integrate algebra and coordinate geometry extensively within the context of the course, and use algebraic techniques such as factoring polynomials, solving equations/systems of equations, and simplifying radicals throughout the course. This course fulfills one of the four Math Carnegie units required for graduation.

Students will apply mathematics involving properties of basic geometric figures to solve problems that arise in the workplace, society, and everyday life through the process of modeling. The following Overarching Concepts are an essential component to all units of instruction in the SCCCR Mathematics curricula:
- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason both contextually and abstractly.
- Use critical thinking skills to justify mathematical reasoning and critique the reasoning of others.
- Connect mathematical ideas and real-world situations through modeling.
- Use a variety of mathematical tools effectively and strategically.
- Communicate mathematically and approach mathematical situations with precision.
- Identify and utilize structures and patterns.
