Course Description

This free online Geometry course provides a comprehensive introduction to geometrical methods and techniques, covering angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, and more.

It is ideal for complementing face-to-face classes, as a study guide, or for those who would like to refresh their knowledge of mathematics.

Certification

To qualify for your official ALISON Diploma, Certificate or PDF you must study and complete all modules and score 80% or more in each of the course assessments. A link to your Diploma certificate will then appear under the My Certificates heading of your My Account page.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this course you will have a good understanding of equilateral, isosceles, scalene, acute-angled, right-angled, and obtuse-angled triangles. You will know how to calculate different types of angles in circles, rectangles and triangles.

You will gain a knowledge of quadrilaterals and the properties of a square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, trapizium and kite. You will effectively learn the rotational symmetry of a polygon. This course will teach you about geometrical solids, such as spheres, hemispheres, toruses and prisms. You will understand transformations such as reflections and rotations.
