Welcome to the Ninth Grade Center and the 2018-2019 school year! I am extremely excited to be here and am looking forward to an amazing year of teaching Geometry. On this site, you will find my contact information and schedule, along with our classroom syllabus, and weekly communication notes under the Geometry tab. Please feel free to contact me with any and all concerns or questions.

Welcome to Geometry!
This course is designed to emphasize the study of the properties and applications of common geometric figures in two and three dimensions. It includes the study of transformations and right triangle trigonometry. Inductive and deductive thinking skills are used in problem solving situations, and applications to the real world are stressed. It also emphasizes writing proofs to solve (prove) properties of geometric figures.
Tutoring is available every day of the week, before school at 8:00 and after school until 4:00.
The geometry department follows the NBHS handbook. Assignments may be turned in one day late for a maximum of 70. Assignments are not accepted more than one day late.
If students are absent, they have the same number of days that they were absent to make up assignments. If students are absent on the day of the review for a test, they are still responsible for taking the test. If they are absent on a test day, students will be given the test the next day that they are in class.
The only allowed electronic device is the school iPad, and students are expected to only be using it for class assignments. (There is to be no listening to music, playing games, streaming movies, etc.)
NO CELL PHONES! Cell phones must be in backpacks during class. If a cell phone is visible, it will be taken up by the teacher and returned at the end of class. Continued cell phone use during class will incur further consequences according to the school cell phone policy.
Major Grades – Tests and Projects –60%
Daily Grades – Warm-Ups, Classwork, and Quizzes – 30%
Homework – 10%
A student may do test corrections and retest on any test on which he or she scores lower than 70. Corrections must be done prior to the retest. Corrections and retests are only available for major tests. A student has ONE WEEK from the time the test is returned to get the corrections done and retest.
Class work and homework
Notes will be completed on the iPad, as well as some activities and classwork. Other daily assignments will be completed on paper and kept in their math folder.
Homework is assigned on a daily basis and checked at the beginning of each class for a completion grade. During that time, homework is discussed and questions are answered. Homework will be done in the spiral notebook, and ALL WORK must be shown for full credit.
Please email me when you have questions or concerns. If you would like me to call you or would like to set up a conference, just let me know in an email, and I will gladly return your call as soon as I can.
If you wish to be on my Monday Mail list, please email me at email@example.com and put Monday Mail in subject line. Also, include your name and your student’s name in the email.
I’m looking forward to a great year!!
