MTH 097 - Geometry

4 Credit(s)

A course in informal geometry covering the study of lines, planes, polygons, circles, solids, area, perimeter, volume, surface area, Pythagorean Theorem, congruence, and similar figures. Applications and exploration of geometry topics rather than proofs will be stressed. MTH 097 is strongly recommended for MTH 111 and MTH 112.

Prerequisite: MTH 095  or MTH 111  completed with a grade of "C-" or better within the past two years or placement by the College's Math Placement Process.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  1. Use inductive reasoning to discover geometric relationships
  2. Know and be able to use the common terms for 2 and 3 dimensional geometric figures
  3. Understand concepts of perimeter, area, volume, and surface area
  4. Apply the Pythagorean theorem to a variety of situations
  5. Identify congruent triangles
  6. Apply the theory of parallel lines in appropriate situations
  7. Apply similar triangles and the basic trigonometric relations in applied situations
  8. Use tools such as the compass, protractor, and computer to create geometric diagrams and patterns. 9. Use algebra to solve geometric problems
  9. Understand and write simple proofs
  10. Explain the application of geometry to a chosen topic of interest (project-optional)
