Review: Concepts of coordinate geometry, graphs of linear equations. Distance formula. Section formula (internal division).

**UNIT IV: GEOMETRY**

**TRIANGLES (15) Periods**

Definitions, examples, counter examples of similar triangles.- (Prove) If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.
- (Motivate) If a line divides two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, the line is parallel to the third side.
- (Motivate) If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, their corresponding sides are proportional and the triangles are similar.
- (Motivate) If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, their corresponding angles are equal and the two triangles are similar.
- (Motivate) If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of another triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, the two triangles are similar.

**CIRCLES (10) Periods**

Tangent to a circle at, point of contact- (Prove) The tangent at any point of a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact.
- (Prove) The lengths of tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.

**UNIT V: TRIGONOMETRY**

**INTRODUCTION TO TRIGONOMETRY (10) Periods**
