The Course Outline
Below is a general listing of units of study that a Geometry student will learn in this Regentslevel course. The order of topics are not necessarily in order, as all districts design their own curriculum.
1. Constructions & Euclidean Geometry Vocabulary
2. Angle & Segment Relationships 3. Introduction to Proofs & Congruent Triangles 4. Quadrilaterals 5. Similar Figures & Trigonometry 6. Transformational Geometry 7. Coordinate Geometry & Proofs within the Plane 8. 3Dimensional Figures 9. Circles 
The Standards & Regents Exam Design
Attached are the New York State standards for Geometry (Common Core). These standards show the old standards, and the soontobe Next Generation Learning Standards for New York State Geometry.
The Regents Examination in Geometry (Common Core) has a total of 35 questions:

Part I (48 Points): 24 Multiple Choice Questions
Part II (14 Points): 7 ShortSized Extended Response Questions
Part III (12 Points): 3 MediumSized Extended Response Questions
Part IV (6 Points): 1 LongSized Extended Response Question
Part II (14 Points): 7 ShortSized Extended Response Questions
Part III (12 Points): 3 MediumSized Extended Response Questions
Part IV (6 Points): 1 LongSized Extended Response Question
The exam has a raw score of 80 points, where the passing raw score can range between 31 and 36 points. It depends on the conversion chart from yeartoyear. This raw score is then converted to a final score graded out of 100 possible points, where a 65 is standard passing score and any grade 85 or above is mastery.
The exam consists of a wide range of topics, each broken down by a percentage, as shown in the table below.

The General Course Description
The fundamental purpose of the course in Geometry is to formalize and extend students’ geometric experiences from the middle grades. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Important differences exist between this Geometry course and the historical approach taken in Geometry classes. For example, transformations are emphasized early in this course. Close attention should be paid to the introductory content for the Geometry conceptual category found in the high school Common Core State Standards. The 8 mathematical practice standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. All students will take the Geometry regents in June. Successful passing of the New York State Geometry Regents Exam in June satisfies, in part, the requirement of passing 3 Math regents exams for an Advanced Regents diploma.
