Geometry exists everywhere in the world around us. We use it to build bridges, to design maps, and to create perspective in paintings. Throughout this course, you will use problem solving and real-world application to gain the knowledge of geometric concepts and their practical uses. This is a required math course for high school graduation.

Besides engaging students in challenging curriculum, the course guides students to reflect on their learning and evaluate their progress through a variety of assessments. Assessments can be in the form of practice lessons, multiple-choice questions, writing assignments, projects, research papers, oral assessments, and discussions. This course uses the state-approved grading scale. Each course contains a mandatory final exam or culminating project that is weighted at 20% of the student’s overall grade.
Proctored exams can be requested by FLVS at any time and for any reason in an effort to ensure academic integrity. When a proctored exam is administered to assess a student’s integrity, the exam must be passed with at least a 59.5% to earn credit for the course.
Courses subject to availability.
