• Geometry

     

    Overview:

    Geometry at the high school level will develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts to help students extend their math knowledge beyond the classroom. The program delivers a challenging high school math curriculum that includes the Common Core Standards and prepares students for their career choice. This program and its practices, will take students beyond “doing” the math to “understanding and explaining” it.

    Tests ~ 60%

    Assignments ~ 20%

    Quizzes ~ 20%

                           

    Formative Assignments

    Assignments include any bookwork or project assigned during the period. Work not finished in class must be finished on student’s own time. Bookwork will be reviewed and turned in on a daily basis. 

     

    Summative Quizzes

    Quizzes will be given as we complete sections from the text. They will cover smaller amounts of material but will be given with greater frequency than tests. 

     

    Summative Tests

    Tests will be given at the end of a chapter. Tests will be closed book. Notes may not be used on tests.

    Discipline Plan:

     

    Expectation for Students

    ·         Be seated and prepared when bell rings.

    ·         Be respectful, quiet, and attentive when the instructor is in front of the class.

    ·         Treat classmates with respect and kindness.

    ·         Keep electronics put away.

    ·         Use given work time for doing math.

    ·         Stay seated and working until the bell rings

     

    Consequences

    ·         Verbal warning.

    ·         Lunch or after school detention.

    ·         Parental contact.

    ·         Administrative referral.

    *Other offenses will be subject to the consequences outlined in the Student Handbook.

    Pass Policy:

    There is one pass for students to use. It will not be given during lecture time. Only one person may receive a pass at a time. Pass usage is meant to be brief. It is not to be used for wandering the halls. Pass privileges will be lost for excessive pass use or for long absences from the classroom.

     

    Grade Checks:

    In the interest of conserving resources, I will not post hard copies of grades. I will however keep grades updated on the computer. Students and parents wishing to monitor progress can log onto iParent at any time. Please feel free to email me with any questions regarding iParent grades.   

     

    Tardy Policy:

    The door to the room will be closed when the bell rings.  Students arriving tardy to class will need to get a pass from the office before being allowed in the class.  Discipline will be dealt with by the office. 

     

    Make Up Work Policy:

    Late work will be accepted for partial credit until the date of the test for the chapter of the assignment.  Assignments are designed to prepare students for the test and do not serve this function after a test has been taken.  If a student is absent they will be given one day for every day they are absent plus one extra day to make up the work the missed while they were gone.
