  2. A Little Bit About Accelerated Geometry • For many students, learning Geometry is similar to learning a new language. • Proofs are often difficult for students to grasp at the beginning of the course. • Generally, marking periods 1 and 2 are more difficult than 3 and 4. • Geometry is included on the SAT.

  3. My Teaching Philosophy • As your child’s teacher, I feel my most important role is to provide him or her with positive feedback and encouragement. In doing so, my ultimate goal is to give your child the self confidence necessary to be successful. • I am very enthusiastic about math. It is my sincere hope that some of this enthusiasm will be passed on to your child.

  4. Keys to Success • Warm Ups • Notes • Homework (checked just about everyday) • Checking answers in the back of the book, on my website, or on HAC is an integral part of the homework process. • Studying • Asking for Help

  5. Grading • Total Points • Homework = 2-4 points per assignment • Quizzes = 25-50 points per quiz, usually one per chapter • Tests = 100 points, one per chapter • Midterm & Final Exam = 25% of the 2nd and 4th marking period grades, respectively • Extra credit assignments are rarely given and are not worth a substantial amount of points.

  6. Return of Assessments Policy • All assessments are graded and returned in a timely fashion. • I go over the assessments with the class, touching upon common difficulties. • Students are then given the opportunity to ask questions regarding the assessment. • I collect the tests and keep them in my filing cabinet. Each student has a file folder. • This folder can be taken home upon request. • Scores are published to “HAC” prior to the assessments being returned. • District assessments, i.e. midterms and finals, are not returned.

  7. What Comes Next? • Accelerated Analysis • For students who were successful in Honors or Accelerated Algebra II. • Considered a Pre-Calculus course. • Analysis • For students who struggled in Honors or Accelerated Algebra II. • Considered advanced Algebra and Trigonometry. • College level Pre-Calculus is still recommended. • Accelerated Statistics • For seniors who were successful in Honors or Accelerated Algebra II. • Trig0nometry & Statistics • One semester of each.
