Geometry and Honors

week of 10/27-10/31

Week at a glance

Quiz scores were the lowest ever. :( Please check the class averages that are posted in the classroom by your names. Please make sure if you missed your quiz, or you have relearned it and want to retest, that you come up at lunch, or after-school on Tuesday and Thursday's to retest.

This week is homecoming week. I know it is hard to stay focused with all the fun stuff going on, but lets make sure our learning doesn't stop. I have the calendar of events below. Lets have a great week! Remember, your test is on Tuesday, November 04, 2014! Let's finish up this unit strong!

This week our learning focus is on midsegment of a triangle and the rules of parallelograms. We will review for the test next week. Don't forget there will be a proof on the test! Those completing the T-charts might want to be reviewing it before the test!
