**Core Connections Geometry**

*Core Connections Geometry* is the second course in a five-year sequence of college preparatory mathematics courses that starts with Algebra I and continues through Calculus. It aims to formalize and extend the geometry that students have learned in previous courses. It does this by focusing on establishing triangle congruence criteria using rigid motions and formal constructions and building a formal understanding of similarity based on dilations and proportional reasoning. It also helps students develop the concepts of formal proof, explore the properties of two- and three-dimensional objects, work within the rectangular coordinate system to verify geometric relationships and prove basic theorems about circles. Students also use the language of set theory to compute and interpret probabilities for compound events. Read More...

**LESSON STRUCTURE**

The *Core Connections* courses are built on rich, meaningful problems and investigations that develop conceptual understanding of the mathematics and establish connections among different concepts. The lesson problems are non-routine and team-worthy, requiring strategic problem solving and collaboration. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to justify their reasoning, communicate their thinking, and generalize patterns. Read More...

**COURSE STRUCTURE**

Chapters are divided into sections that are organized around core topics. Within each section, lessons include activities, challenging problems, investigations and practice problems. Teacher notes for each lesson include a “suggested lesson activity” section with ideas for lesson introduction, specific tips and strategies for lesson implementation to clearly convey core ideas, and a means for bringing the lesson to closure.
