In the second part of this introductory course in Geometry, you are going to learn even more about triangles, and especially the right triangle. This study of right triangles is known as Trigonometry. A whole course is given on just Trigonometry before you take Calculus. You will also be dealing with measurement in this second part: area and volume of various types of two-dimensional figures like the ones you have learned about. You will also extend the geometric properties into three dimensions by calculating volume. You will learn how area and volume are affected when certain changes occur, and how there are actually different kinds of geometry besides the plane geometry that is now familiar to you. Finally, you will begin to learn more about how probability fits into geometry.Required textbook (Sold separately):
