Geometry II

Continue on the road to geometry mastery with this proof-centric course.

This course covers a wide range of theorems in classical Euclidean geometry. You'll start by deriving the Central Angle Theorem and Thales' Theorem, then move on to the Power of a Point Theorem, and conclude with an exploration of different types of triangle centers and their presence on the Euler Line.

Our goal is to help you understand and explore the derivations of these theorems, and to give you many opportunities to practice and strengthen your skills applying them!
