Honors Geometry Expectations and Class Rules Class Description: Geometry is designed for the college-bound student, in preparation for Algebra II. It is a combination of plane and solid geometry with a brief introduction of trigonometry and logic. Students are taught two-column proofs and the properties of polygons, circles, and three-dimensional figures. Geometry is a perquisite for Algebra II and is required for admission to one of the sixteen institutions of the University of North Carolina system.

Honors Geometry is an accelerated geometry course for the college-bound student, in preparation for Algebra II. It demands a more challenging approach to the study of plane and solid geometry. Trigonometry, logic, deductive methods of proof, and reasoning skills will be emphasized. Students will also be taught two-column, flow, and paragraph proofs, and the properties of polygons, circles, and three-dimensional figures. Geometry is a perquisite for Algebra II and is required for admission to one of the sixteen institutions of the University of North Carolina system.

Honors Geometry will provide students with the opportunity to take greater responsibility for their learning, so reading, doing homework, and keeping up daily is a must! Listening in class, taking notes, working effectively in groups, and asking questions are all ways in which you can be successful. If you have difficulty, please feel free to come before school or after school for extra help. I will be available most afternoons and/or mornings if you need help. Use after-school help sessions (Every Thursday) before major tests, not after! Students may retake only one chapter test per nine weeks. Quizzes will not be retested. The retest must be taken within the week that follows the return of the original test. Also the student must schedule and participate in an after school help session before retesting.

Your final grade will come from individual quizzes (announced and pop), chapter test, task completions (labs), group work, homework evaluation, projects, and notebook checks.

You will need a scientific or graphic calculator for use at home and in the classroom, a binder with notebook paper, and at least 3 dividers. You will also need graph paper, a compass, a protractor, scissors occasionally 4 AAA batteries, and a box of Kleenex.

Class Rules

Show respect for yourself, your peers, and all school personnel. Disrespect and rude behavior will not be tolerated.

Follow all rules in your student handbook, especially those concerning behavior, dress code, and honesty.

Be prepared for class each day by completing assignments on time. Be sure to bring your textbook, workbook, notebook, calculator, and other needed supplies daily.

Be on time for class. Remember, tardies will be recorded and consequences will occur.

In class telephone use is for emergencies only with teacher's permission.

Dispose of gum properly; If I see it or hear it - you have to "spit it out".

I look forward to working with you this year in Geometry. Remember: You will determine success or failure by the amount of effort you exert!

Geometry continues students’ study of geometric concepts building upon middle school topics. Students will move from an inductive approach to deductive methods of proof in their study of two- and three-dimensional geometric figures. Reasoning skills will be emphasized and students will broaden their use of the coordinate plane. Appropriate technology, from manipulatives to calculators and graphics software, should be used regularly for instruction and assessment. Prerequisites

Apply geometric properties and relationships to solve problems.

Use formulas to solve problems.

Define and use linear expressions to model and solve problems.

Operate with matrices to model and solve problems.

Number and Operations

The learner will perform operations with real numbers to solve problems.

- Use the trigonometric ratios to model and solve problems involving right triangles. - Use length, area, and volume of geometric figures to solve problems. Include arc length, area of sectors of circles; lateral area, surface area, and volume of three-dimensional figures; and perimeter, area, and volume of composite figures. - Use length, area, and volume to model and solve problems involving probability.

Geometry and Measurement

The learner will use geometric and algebraic properties of figures to solve problems and write proofs.

- Use logic and deductive reasoning to draw conclusions and solve problems. - Apply properties, definitions, and theorems of angles and lines to solve problems and write proofs. - Apply properties, definitions, and theorems of two-dimensional figures to solve problems and write proofs:

Triangles.

Quadrilaterals.

Other polygons.

Circles.

- Develop and apply properties of solids to solve problems.

Data Analysis and Probability

The learner will transform geometric figures in the coordinate planealgebraically.

- Describe the transformation (translation, reflection, rotation, dilation) of polygons in the coordinate plane in simple algebraic terms. - Use matrix operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, scalar multiplication) to describe the transformation of polygons in the coordinate plane.
