Dear students and parents,
This year we will be studying the new Common Core Geometry curriculum for the first time. As you probably observed last year, the Common Core standards place more emphasis on conceptual understanding and less on rote memorization. I am excited for this change and believe my students will find the class both challenging and interesting. In June, students will take both the new Common Core exam and the New York State Geometry exam that has been used for the past several years. Parents, please feel free to contact me through phone or email with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year.
Course Description: Geometry is a challenging, exciting area in mathematics which has many practical applications. In this course students will learn the basic properties and theorems governing two and three dimensional geometry, and will also develop problem solving and critical thinking skills through formal proofs, hands on activities, and other forms of in-depth analysis.
Materials Needed: The following materials must be brought to class by the student on a daily basis:
- pens and pencils - ruler and compass
- three-ring binder - graph paper
- notebook -TI 83/84 graphing calculator
- text books (McDougal Littell Geometry and Houghton Mifflin Unified Mathematics) *
* Students will not be required to bring both texts to class every day. I will let them know a day or more in advance which, if any, book to bring to class.
Grading and Assessment: The largest portion (70%) of students grades in this course will come from their performance on weekly unit tests and quizzes. Homework, which will be checked on a regular basis and will occasionally be collected, will also play a role (20%) in determining quarter grades. You will not be penalized for incorrect answers on homework problems, but I do expect you to show work and give a solution to every single problem. Effort is what counts. Students will also be assessed based on class participation (10%). This grade will be determined by the quality of the contributions made during class discussions and group work, as well as successfully adhering to classroom rules and guidelines.
Rules and Expectations: Specific classroom rules are posted in the room and can be referred to at any time. A general guideline is to be respectful and considerate to others this includes your teacher as well as your peers. Some other expectations I have of my students are the following:
Be an active learner instead of a passive listener. The greater the effort you put into a task, the more you will learn and the more rewarding it will be. Students of math need to be willing to THINK! This means asking questions in class, challenging the ideas presented to you, and putting an honest effort into every problem.
Be willing to take risks and make mistakes. Mathematics can be very challenging and does not always come easily to us. Mistakes are an important part of learning and should not be something we fear.
A positive attitude and a strong work ethic are the two biggest requirements for success.
Parents:
Please check my website for homework assignments, daily notes, and important dates.
Stay on top of your childs progress by logging into eSchool Parent Portal. This will show homework completion, quiz and test grades, and their overall average.
All of your childs math materials should be organized in their 3 ring math binder. Students must refer to this when they are completing their homework.
If you should have any questions regarding your childs progress during the year, please feel free to contact me at school.
