## College Geometry (MAT-103)

Length:

Varies (self-study; self-paced).

Location:
Various; distance learning format.
Dates:
November 2014 - Present.
Instructional delivery format:
Online/distance learning
Learner Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: solve real life problems using geometry; identify geometric shapes and characteristics of angles, lines, and shapes; determine whether a geometric figure is congruent and/or similar to another given figure and explain the reasons for such conclusion; calculate the perimeter, area, and volume of a variety of geometric figures; apply the rules of geometry of a circle and properties of lines and angles that run through one or more points on the circle's circumference; plot points, lines, and geometric figures on a graph; and use coordinate geometry rules to identify properties of these points, lines, and figures.

Instruction:

This self-study provides students with the basic principles of geometry necessary for further college-level mathematics through textbook reading assignments, optional homework assignments, study guide, and written and video lessons. Major topics include: properties of geometric shapes and measurements, calculating the dimensions, including one, two, and three-dimensional properties of geometric figures. Students discuss concepts such as similarity and congruency, geometric proofs establishing relationships between figures, characteristics of triangles, quadrilaterials, higher order polygons, circles, three dimensional figures and properties of the sides and angles appurtenant to these figures, and graphing and coordinate geometry.

Credit recommendation:

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Geometry, Mathematics, or as a general elective (11/14) (1/20 revalidation).
