Geometer's Sketchpad </li></li></ul><li>Integrating 21st Century Learning into our Geometry Community: Technology<br /><ul><li>Students will be taught how to use a very helpful computer program called Geometer's Sketchpad.
construction of isosceles and equilateral triangles
explore geometric construction of parabolas</li></ul>Students will also use the graphing calculator<br /><ul><li>we will use the calculator more so as a tool to check our work and to perform actions that can only be solved by a calculator
we will never use the calculator as a means of carrying out simple math operations/calculations(that is what our brain is there for)</li></li></ul><li>Technology Lab: Geometer's Sketchpad <br /><ul><li>There will be 101 project idea that each student can choose from
1 project will be assigned each marking period
additionally the Geometer's Sketchpad project presentations will begin last month of school
Tests: 40%</li></li></ul><li>Action Plan<br /><ul><li>A student's success is a group effort of the student, parent and teacher.
So lets make your child's success a community effort.
