**Dover High School Competencies:**

** **

1) Foundations- Students will calculate measures of line segments, angles, polygon perimeters/circle

circumference and areas, based on geometric definitions, properties, postulates, and theorems.

2) Congruence- Students will display one to one correspondence amongst figures on and off the

Cartesian Coordinate Plane using two-column proofs and isometric transformations.

3) Polygons & Circles- Students will classify polygons/circles and calculate angle measures and

segment lengths using definitions, properties, postulates, and theorems.

4) Similarity- Students will write and use proportions/scale factors to calculate measures of similar

figures and demonstrate similarity on and off the Cartesian plane.

5) Solids- Students will classify solids and calculate measures of surface area and volume to model real-

life applications.
