Standard 8: Geometry from an Algebraic Perspective

In grades 9-12, the mathematics curriculum should include the continued study of geometry of two and three dimensions from an algebraic point of view so that students can:
  • Translate between synthetic and coordinate representations

  • Identify congruent and similar figures using transformations

  • Deduce properties of figures using transformations and using coordinates

  • Analyze properties of Euclidean transformations and relate translations to vectors and similar figures using transformations
  • and so that, in addition, college-intending students can
