Fundamentals of Geometry – Part II

Grade 8-9 Students (September to May)
The School of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton University offers a non-credit enrichment course for students in grade 8-9.

In this sequel course more advanced topics in Geometry will be studied, including an introduction to trigonometry and 3-dimensional geometry.  Completion of Fundamentals of Geometry I is a prerequisite.

We propose to cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Trigonometry
  • Triangle – Metric relations
  • Circle (Advanced properties)
  • 3 D Geometry – Points, Lines and Planes in Space
  • Solid figures:
    (i) Polyhedra (prism, pyramid, truncated pyramid) and
    (ii) Non-polyhedra (cylinder, cone, truncated cone, sphere)

These topics will be covered in-depth and are not related to Ontario Elementary or Secondary School Curriculum.

Fundamentals of Geometry II is a required course for Competitive Math II.
