Content Standard Mathematics Standard C - Geometry

Content Standard: Students in Wisconsin will be able to use geometric concepts, relationships and procedures to interpret, represent, and solve problems.

[Note: Familiar mathematical content dealing with measurement of geometric objects (e.g., length, area, volume) is presented in "D. Measurement."]

Rationale
Geometry and its study of shapes and relationships is an effort to understand the nature and beauty of the world. While the need to understand our environment is still with us, the rapid advance of technology has created another need: to understand ideas communicated visually through electronic media. For these reasons, educated people in the 21st Century need a well-developed sense of spatial order to visualize and model real world* problem situations.
