Same content, different format

Upon successful completion of the course, each student should be able to:

1: Identify, name, and represent basic geometric shapes in one-, two-, and three-dimensions.
2: Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about their relationships.
3: Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to estimate and determine standard and non-standard measurements in one-, two-, and three dimensions.
4: Investigate geometric relationships through basic geometric constructions with and without technology.
5: Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations.         
6: Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.
7: Communicate effectively about geometry.
8:  Use technology and manipulatives appropriately to enhance the learning of mathematics.
