Whew! You've made it to Thanksgiving break! I know you don't want to think about it at the moment, but you do have an EOC worth 20% of your grade coming up on December 3rd and 4th. That only gives us one week to get through a whole bunch of information.
We are going to learn mostly Unit 8 stuff upon your return, with one "crash" course on probability. I will resume quizzing/testing after the EOC.
Don't forget to go through the EOC resources I provided for you under the H. Geo tab. You also have an EOC review guide due on November 28th.
Enjoy your break!
One week until Thanksgiving!
You have your Unit 7 Test on Thursday. We will begin Unit 8 on Friday. Don't forget to work on your EOC review guide (due Wed. Nov. 28th).
Have a great weekend!
Three weeks until Thanksgiving Break. Only 14 school days for you (you're off of election day: Nov. 6th).
You have a quiz over angle measures on Tuesday. You need to know the 4 relationships and their associated rule. You'll learn about radians this week. I know you've been dying to know what they are.
Have great weekend!
Can you believe we're halfway through the semester? We started Unit 6 this week and are going full force with it already! Here's what you need to know to get through next week:
We will have our next "Touchstone" on Monday (over the first part of Unit 3) and we will be taking another one over the 2nd part of Unit 3 at some point in the near future. You also have a quiz on Wednesday.
Have a good weekend!
Hi there! Only reminder I have for you is that your Unit 5 Test is on Tuesday. Have a great weekend!
Happy Homecoming! Hopefully you're going to the game and to the dance and enjoying this weekend to the fullest! Here's what you need to know for next week:
We're going to talk about Trigonometry all next week. Thursday is early release, so there will be no tutoring after school.
Welcome back! I hope you had a delightfully restful break. Here's some reminders for the week:
You have your Unit 4 test on Thursday. You'll be reviewing Tuesday and Wednesday as well as doing a group activity and presentation with your group. Your Unit 2 touchstone will be Wednesday.
One more week before break! We're a third of the way done. If your grade isn't where you want it to be, please make sure to check out my study tips under the Resources tab above.
Your Unit 3 test is on Tuesday. This week, we are going to start "spiraling" previous units into short multiple choice reviews. These grades will go into the Miscellaneous category and will help ensure you're not forgetting anything before the EOC.
Have a great weekend!
Are you counting down to break yet? 10 school days, can you believe it? Here's what you need to know:
You have a quiz over 2-column proofs on Tuesday. It would be wise for you to rework through all the proofs we've done in class. Your Unit 3 test is coming up on 9/18.
Have an awesome weekend!
Can you believe you've been in school for a month already? Here's what you need to know for the week:
1. We are going full force with proofs. We will be spending the next few days doing nothing but proofs all class long.
2. You have a quiz on Thursday. Notice the calendar says "no proofs". This means you will not be expected to write a full two-column proof on this quiz... yet. The quiz title is "triangles". You'll be expected to know anything and everything related to triangles, including the 5 ways to prove them congruent. Again, you will NOT be expected to write out a two-column proof... yet.
3. I noticed a large portion of you struggled with identifying triangle centers on Friday's quiz and in general have been struggling with vocabulary up until now. Did you know there are tons of flashcard apps out there to help you study? Moment of truth here: I haven't had to study for a test in 10 years. BUT I did a little research for you and found that "Cram" is supposedly one of the best apps out there. I even found a set of flashcards that will review centers of triangles! This would be a great place to start: https://www.cram.com/flashcards/geometry-chapter-5-relationships-in-triangles-1655496
4. Take 10-15 minutes to read over your unit notes EVERY night before you start doing your homework. Yes, as the unit progresses it'll take you a full 15-20 minutes. You know what else though? Your grade will improve. Take my advice here. 10-15 minutes could save you 15% on your car insurance. No wait, on your grade. Do it.
