Expectations (Geometry)

  1. 1. Welcome to Geometry
  2. 2. <ul><li>Allow me to share a few thoughts on: </li></ul><ul><li>Class Material </li></ul><ul><li>Prerequisites </li></ul><ul><li>Expectations </li></ul><ul><li>Extra-Credit </li></ul><ul><li>Wisdom (not necessarily my own) </li></ul>
  3. 3. I will be the first to admit, some of the material covered in this class is going to be challenging, but you may find some of it a little slow and boring. Material
  4. 4. I will be the first to admit, some of the material covered in this class is going to be challenging, but you may find some of it a little slow and boring. The best advise I can give is: Material
  5. 5. I will be the first to admit, some of the material covered in this class is going to be challenging, but you may find some of it a little slow and boring. The best advise I can give is: 1) Just because I admit that some of the material may be boring, DON’T UNDER-ESTIMATE IT. Material
  6. 6. I will be the first to admit, some of the material covered in this class is going to be challenging, but you may find some of it a little slow and boring. The best advise I can give is: 1) Just because I admit that some of the material may be boring, DON’T UNDER-ESTIMATE IT. 2) Know the VOCABULARY! More often than not, it is the vocabulary that will get you. Material
  7. 7. I will be the first to admit, some of the material covered in this class is going to be challenging, but you may find some of it a little slow and boring. The best advise I can give is: 1) Just because I admit that some of the material may be boring, DON’T UNDER-ESTIMATE IT. 2) Know the VOCABULARY! More often than not, it is the vocabulary that will get you. Major “problem terms”: Linear pair , between vs. middle . Material

  17. 17. Prerequisites are the things you should know before entering a class (situation). Prerequisites I expect you to become very comfortable with manipulating, (add, subtract, multiply & divide) fractions!

  25. 25. Prerequisites are the things you should know before entering a class (situation). Prerequisites Solving and graphing basic linear equations will be reviewed. However, if this seems to give you much trouble, you will want to get in for extra help and get it under control rapidly. This is an Algebra 1 task.

However, if this seems to give you much trouble, you will want to get in for extra help and get it under control rapidly. This is an Algebra 1 task.

  51. 51. Wisdom Ben Franklin was once asked what good a new invention was, he responded: “ What good is a newborn baby?” Translation: What good is mathematics? In an immature state, none!
  52. 52. Wisdom Ben Franklin was once asked what good a new invention was, he responded: “ What good is a newborn baby?” Translation: What good is mathematics? In an immature state, none! If nurtured and developed properly, there is no limitation.

If nurtured and developed properly, there is no limitation. “ If a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it away from him. An investment of knowledge always pays the best interest.” Benjamin Franklin
