Analytic Geometry

Analytic Geometry Overview

Analytic Geometry is the 10th grade mathematics course for Miller Grove High School students. Analytic Geometry is the second course in a sequence of three required high school courses designed to ensure career and college readiness. The course represents a discrete study of geometry with correlated statistics applications. Building on standards from Coordinate Algebra and from middle school, students will use transformations and proportional reasoning to develop a formal understanding of similarity and congruence. Students will apply similarity in right triangles to understand right triangle trigonometry. Students will use the Pythagorean Theorem and the relationship between the sine and cosine of complementary angles to solve problems involving right triangles. Students will understand and apply theorems about circles, find arc lengths of circles, and find areas of sectors of circles. Students will develop and explain formulas related to circles and the volume of solid figures and use the formulas to solve problems. Students will address properties of rational and irrational numbers, rewrite expressions involving radicals, and perform operations on polynomials. Students will analyze quadratic functions.
