Geometry

Welcome back to your first quarter of the school year! 

Geometry will be a brand new experience for most students as they have not yet been challenged to think in the abstract and applicable type of math that Geometry is! Student's should expect to open their minds to finding solutions to all levels of problems.  Working backwards will help students learn to find errors but will also help to master concepts.  Students should expect approx 30 minutes of homework each night.

We will begin this quarter by learning what Geometry is and how to work within the content.  We will learn how to name all types of geometric figures, what it means to be equal and congruent, how to use deductive and inductive reasoning skills, and some review with lines and algebraic solving and simplifying methods.

It will be EXTREMELY important for students to be prepared every day for class. This includes having a pencil, paper, taking notes, calculators, text books, etc.  Students should expect to have a new concept for practice each day, therefore approx 20-30 mintues of homework.  Don't wait until the last minute! Prepare everyday for the next and review constantly.  Come in for help BEFORE you get overwhelmed! 

Opt Out: Student's must have an 85% and complete all final review materials at an 80% or higher.

**Note to parents and students: The final for the fall semester is a CUMULATIVE FINAL.  Students should be constantly reviewing all first and second quarter material as they learn new material throughout the first semester of school.**
