Objective:

Students will apply concepts, learned from Algebra 1, to more complex concepts of math, particularly in solving equations using Geometric concepts.

Materials Needed:

Students will need paper for assignments, pencils, highlighters, 2 or 3 inch three ring binder with subject dividers, rulers, compass, and a scientific or graphing calculator.

Textbook:

We have a new curriculum called Eureka Math. The books will be used for notes and assignments. If they are lost or destroyed, you will be charged full price for a new one. You will fall behind in class if this happens. This book is your lifeline if you want to pass.

Course Expectations:

Students are to be in class on time with materials needed for the day. Students are only allowed three tardies. Anything after the third is a detention. Students are expected to take notes during lecture. Following lecture, homework will be assigned. Homework will be due the following day after assigned. All work has to be shown for credit. No Work equals zero for the problem. When absent, you have 3 days to complete your work. I expect full participation in this class. This includes asking questions and coming in on your own time for extra understanding of the homework at the time.

Quizzes and Tests:

There will be Mid Unit Quizzes and End of Unit tests. If you get a 90% or higher on the quizzes or tests you will get 10 pts extra credit towards homework.

Projects:

Towards the end of the school year, there will be a blue print project using the program Google Sketch Up or Minecraft. The students will create a blue print of a structure of their liking using everything they have learned from the whole year.

Classroom rules:

  • No cell phones during lecture. Parents please do not text or call you child while they are trying to learn. If it is an emergency, please call the office. You have to call the office to get them out anyways. Thank you
  • No food, gum, or drinks in the room.
  • Respect your peers and authority.  

 

Course Overview:

  1. Geometric Reasoning
  2. Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

Grading Scale:

The standard grading scale will be used

            90% - 100% ----------A

            80% - 89% ----------- B

            70% - 79% ----------- C

            60% - 69% ----------- D

            59% and below -------F

 

Cheating will not be tolerated. If caught cheating, there will be a zero for that particular assignment or test. There will be a chance to make the assignment up for 50% of the points and a chance to make up a different test the following day after school.
