Geometry Part 2

We will be having a quiz on Friday, January 8.  It will include knowing the definitions of special quadrilaterals, the properties of parallelograms and triangle  congruence.  Attached are the papers we have been working with so far.  Tonight’s assignment is to complete the back of the page titled 5.1: Properties of Parallelograms.

# 11-4-15 Algebra

This week we are working on graphing linear equations and inequalities.

# Geometry 11-4-15

We are working on triangle properties this week.  Properties to focus on include:

• Sum of the angles of a triangle = 180 degrees
• Sum of 2 sides of a triangle is greater than the third side (and how to find the range of possible sides given 2 sides of a triangle.)
• The longest side is opposite the largest angle
• Angles that form a line add to 180 degrees.

Tonight’s work:9 to 17 sum of angles

I want to express my concern for all those involved in the accident on Rogers Clarke Blvd.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

# Geometry 10-13-15

We have been reviewing for the midterm which will be taken on Thursday.

Some students did not complete the Pythagorean Theorem project.  This counts as a test grade, so it is important to not have a zero.  I am offering a second chance for partial credit.

# Algebra 10-8-15

We are getting ready for the midterm exam which will be given next Tuesday .  Today,  we worked on solving literal equations and solving multi-step equations.  Tonight’s assignment is to do the multiples of 3 and #19 on the handout attached below.  Notice the answers are on the bottom of the page.  You MUST show your work for credit.

# Geometry 10-8-15

We are getting ready for our midterm test next week. I am modifying the assignment for tonight.  You do NOT have to do any problems on the back of the last page (we were going to do the multiples of 3 on this page).  You may also skip question 23.

reviewworksheet2-1 (3)

The main topics for the midterm are :

• Pythagorean Theorem
• Logic- conditional statements, Venn diagrams , converse, Law of Detachment, Law of Syllogism.
• Basic Algebra Skills
• Angle Relations – linear pairs, vertical angles, complementary and supplementary angles, angle addition
• Coordinate Geometry – distance between points, midpoints, slope of parallel and perpendicular lines.
• Transversal lines and their angles
• Formulas involving 3-D figures (you will have the formula sheet)

# 10-5-15 Geometry

We are learning about corresponding angles on parallel lines.  We added the Corresponding Angles Postulate to our Theorem Builder Notes (green sheets)

CW 2 10.5.15 transversals

HW: do all problems on the front side of this document.  On #5-8 you only need to give one pair of each type of angle)

# Algebra Benchmark

We have our first benchmark on Sept. 29.  This will count as a test grade.  The review attached here covers most of the topics on the test.  Note that although the review includes inequalities, these are not on the benchmark and students are not expected to do those problems.

# Week 1, 2015

We have finished our first week !  This week we reviewed solving equations from algebra and area and perimeter from middle school.  Most importantly, we began our Vocabulary Builder.  Throughout the year we will be adding to the blue vocabulary sheets.  These, along with Frayer diagrams and Theorem Builders, will make up a large portion of our notes for the year.   I have posted a condensed version of the Vocabulary Builders on this site in the Geometry folder.  I will continue to add to this as the year progresses.  It is different from your pages in that I only skipped one or two lines between letter-groups.  We also took our first quiz on Friday.  Students were allowed to use their vocabulary sheets on this quiz.

# SOL Review for Credit

All of my students can submit a 20 question quiz from  jlab to replace a missing homework.  We discussed the “correctness” level required in class.  Up to 5 quizzes can be submitted.    After completing the quiz, record the tracking number in the event the e-mail gets lost.  My email is kdileo@ccps.us

If you miss a question, make a note about the problem.  You can ask about it in class, or visit sites like  Khan Academy ,  PurpleMath  or other sites posted in Resources at the top of the blog page.  Some problems have a detailed explanation where the correctness of each answer is posted.

Students conducted an in-class survey on March 19.  On March 23, they were assigned the task put forth in this rubric.  This is to count as a test grade and was due March 30.  Late work will be accepted, with a deduction for the late submission.

# Triangle Book Key and Blank

Classifications One Triangle.tif[1]

Attached are the key and the student blank version of the triangle book project.  This is a test grade and is due on Monday, April 13.  We have been filling this out piece by piece since March 16.  There are a couple of entries we did not get to in class, but all are review in nature.  The entries we did not do as a class will not be counted against the grade for this assignment.

# 2/25/15

Geometry students received several assignments today. They have their usual homework, which today was a worksheet on on conguent triangles. They received an Extra Credit assignment. This is a review of topics we have already covered, but need to keep fresh on. This assignment is due by next Friday, March 6.Worksheet_4.2_Applying_triangle_congruence (1)pythagoras_distance ws Since it looks likely that we will not have school on Thursday, they have a small assignment (on the back of tonight’s work) dealing with finding distances. They also have a review of how to find distances using either the Pythagorean Theorem or the distance formula.

# Algebra 1/15/15

Factoring polynomials is the topic of the day. This can be a challenging process for some students. We will focus on the grouping and the x-box methods. There are other methods to factor polynomials, including the Rainbow method.
