1. You will need the following items for class each day: charged chromebook, 3-ring binder (only to be used for math class!), loose-leaf paper, graph paper, and pencils (you must be able to erase mistakes). You are also welcomed to have your own dry-erase maker and eraser, however I will also have them in class for shared-use.
    2. Textbook. We have a class set of textbooks, so you may leave your assigned textbook at home for the year. Youd do NOT need to bring your textbook to class each day.
    3. Calculators. A scientific calculator will be suitable for homework purposes. It is not necessary to purchase a graphing calculator. However, if you would like to purchase one, the TI-89 Titanium is the type that is currently used in the advanced high school courses.



    1. Classwork/Homework will typically be assigned daily and posted on our google classroom.
    2. Electronic Homework is due by the start of the school day. Paper-based work must be on your desk at the beginning of class.
    3. No late work will be accepted for credit (Except in the case of an absence, see next page)  
    4. You must show your work to receive credit, when applicable.
    5. No partial credit will be given. You must complete the entire assignment.


    Classwork and Loose Leaf Binders:

    1. Your binder should be neat, organized & complete. Everything must have your name & date.
    2. There will be periodic UNANNOUNCED binder quizzes through each marking period.  These quizzes will assess your participation by checking for complete and accurate work. This includes do-nows, notes, classwork, and homework.
    3. You must copy the notes you miss every time you are not in class. You need to learn the material you missed and failure to do so will also lower your binder quiz grades!


    Grading Policy:

    50% TESTS         35% QUIZZES and PROJECTS       15% HOMEWORK and CLASSWORK





    Course Overview:

    This geometry course is designed as a rigorous course that develops reasoning and problem-solving skills in such topics as congruence and similarity; applying properties of lines, triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles; proving geometric theorems; applying transformations in the coordinate plane.  Students will develop problem-solving skills by using length, perimeter, area, circumference, surface area, and volume to solve real-world problems. Students will be introduced to trigonometry and will continue to apply advanced algebraic skills throughout the course in order to fully prepare them for their high school math career.



    1. You MUST copy any notes you missed, as well as make up missed classwork/homework.
    2. If possible, please email when you are going to be absent. I will do my best to provide you with notes and/or a video for the lesson you missed.
    3. Always check our google classroom page to view any assignments you miss when absent.
    4. When possible, make up missed work on the day you are absent BEFORE returning back to school. However, if needed, you will have one day for each day absent to make up work.
    5. Be prepared to make up any missed tests or quizzes when you return to school.
    6. Unnecessary absences should be avoided to keep from falling behind in class!


    Classroom Rules:

    1. Be on Time. You are expected to be in your assigned seat and start the Do-Now by the time the bell rings. Pencils should be sharpened before the bell rings.
    2. Be Prepared. You need your binder (with paper!) and chromebook (CHARGED!)  every day.
    3. Be Respectful. Respect all people and property. Use appropriate language and behavior at all times.  Follow directions the first time they are given.
    4. Raise your Hand and wait to be called on. Do not talk out of turn.
    5. Math work must be done in pencil. Mistakes are okay if we can erase them!
    6. Do not disrupt the learning environment!



    1. Tests and quizzes will always be announced. 
    2. Tests and quizzes will primarily be paper-based.
    3. A cumulative final will be given at the end of the year.


    Parent/Student Portals:

    *All grades will be posted on Genesis in a timely manner.  This includes tests, quizzes, projects, classwork and homework assignments. Please check grades on a regular basis (at least weekly) to stay updated on student progress throughout the year.  Please email me any time that you have any questions or concerns.


    Cell Phones

    *During class, cell phones should be put AWAY (unseen and unheard).  If a student is found using their cell phone, it will be taken away, as per the MAMS Code of Conduct.
