High school geometry courses take abstract concepts that students have previously learned and expand them in complexity and real-world application. So this branch of high school mathematics becomes not only more challenging, as the geometry operations become more involved, but also more exciting, as students see how geometry concepts apply to creating a wide variety of useful and necessary things in the real world. But learning geometric proofs about circles and triangles, understanding geometric rigid motions, and relating geometric points to the solution of equations all require a thorough grounding in high school geometry vocabulary.
