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.
