Day 9 of our geometry class was the 5th block of our unit called "Tools of Geometry". Our next block will be all about polygons. Then we will learn about all the kinds of triangles. After another quiz (end of 11th block or beginning of 12th) we will begin a mini-unit about geometric constructions.
Be here everyday and do your homework, and you'll be able to do your best. If you are absent, be sure to copy notes from a friend.
Today was mostly a hands-on practice day. There were several in-class activities that helped students master naming, sketching, labeling, and interpreting.
We did not learn anything new.
HW #7, due Wednesday, Sept 14 is a quick review (no new content). Also due Wednesday are problems 1-6 at the bottom of HW #5. I have attached links to downloads of both of them below. 1-6 require straightedge and protractor, which has been distributed in class.
