The purpose of this course is to develop geometric reasoning concepts and processes that will enhance each student’s analytical reasoning that will be helpful when facing a variety of real-world decisions. Geometry has applications in many fields, including art, architecture, the sciences, as well as other branches of mathematics.
My major goals for the year are that all students in my class learn three different reasoning skills: deductive reasoning; inductive reasoning; and, abductive reasoning. These reasoning skills will help each student accomplish the following: Develop analytical and reasoning skills needed to advance to higher-level math courses; Improve or engage reading comprehension by analyzing story problems and case studies involving algebra; Achieve the knowledge and skills needed to PASS or exceed requirements of the EOC Mathematics examination; Benefit from mathematical reasoning in solving problems in the real world; and, Appreciate that critical thinking skills will enhance the likelihood of successful outcomes.
PEARSON Section 11-2. Assigned 5/18. Due 5/25, Volumes of Prisms and Cylinders. Students will learn the volume formulas of prisms and cylinders for application to oblique prisms and cylinders. Model 3-dimenionsal figures to solve related problems. Key vocabulary words are: cylinder, prism, oblique cylinder, oblique prism and Cavalieri’s Formula. Review examples 1-4. Take notes on Concept Summary. Work problems: Do you Understand? Problems 1-5.
VOLUME WORKSHEET - Assigned 5/18. Due 5/27. Follow directions provided on the worksheet. You may use any references that you like. Utilize key definitions in Pearson Section 11.
PEARSON QUIZ Section 11-1. Due 5/19. Part 1: 5 multiple choice problems that reinforce understanding of 3-dimensional figures, shapes and cross sections. Part 2: 3 multiple choice questions that check for understanding. Each question includes review and demonstration in response to any incorrect answer. This quiz replaces the Khan Academy quiz that was scheduled for May 12th. The recorded grade will be the combined performace of Parts 1 and 2.
MAY 4-8TH KHAN ACADEMY ASSIGNMENT – Solid Geometry Introduction. Focus on volume and related formula of various objects: cylinder; cones; spheres; prisms and cubes.

GRADED ASSIGNMENT KHAN ACADEMY
APRIL 13TH thru APRIL 17th - Khan Academy Assignment – Circles, Arcs and Segmentss: Each student will receive energy credits that will equate to classroom participation based upon watching the videos that have been assigned. Each quiz and/or test will be recorded as a component of the weekly graded event that will also contribute to "energy credits". Students may choose to complete the entire assignment at their pace. Alternatively, students can interact with me via email and/or video conferencing, as necessary. I will post responses to all student questions on this website.
