Second Semester Study Guide

The second semester study guide is attached to the bottom of this post.  Each student received his or her study guide today in class, and everyone will have today’s class and Friday’s class to complete the extensive review.  Some of the students wanted to work on it tonight, and some even mentioned having time to complete it on the weekend.

The study guide is due for a gold grade the day of your child’s semester exam.  I am taking it as a completion grade, and an answer key is posted in my room for each student to check his or her work.  I am also available to the students for individual help or questions.  Each student’s second semester notebook has all of the notes and examples from class.

The exam schedule is listed below:

Monday, May 21  1st and 2nd period

Tuesday, May 22  5th and 6th period

Wednesday, May 23  3rd and 4th period

Geo Project Information and Rubric

We started the planning phase of our big geometry project that we will be working on in class for the next two weeks.  The students picked groups today and planned out details such as supplies they will need, what design they want to create, and who is bringing what supplies to school so that everyone contributes.

This is my absolute favorite time of the year because of this project.  The students really demonstrate collaboration and creativity in the final products.  The project will be completed at school, and if they pay attention to the requirements in the rubric, it is also an easy gold grade.  It will be worth 100 points.

The information sheet and rubric that I gave each child today is attached below.  We will not have any homework for the next two weeks except to bring in needed materials for their designs.
