Today was the first block of a quick end-of-year unit over 3 dimensional geometric figures and volume. There will be a 50 pt BIg Quiz over this unit on May 15-16.

I am planning a 24 pt quiz over the Unit Circle early next week. The questions will be just like the two questions on the previous unit test: a sketch with a point on the unit circle marked to find degrees, radians, and coordinates.

I used some models of geometric solids to introduce students to terms like "face", "edge", "vertex", "polyhedron (classified by number of faces)", "regular polyhedron".

Students figured out how to find volume of prisms and cylinders (Volume = area of the base times the height of the solid). We practice a couple of problems and also worked backward to find missing dimensions if you know the volume.

Students were assigned HW #11 - p 509:10-22 and the first chart on #37, plus p 517-8: 1-6, 11-13. On pp 517-8, students must show use of the correct formula.

If not already done, definitions and sketches for the following terms should be entered into Geometric Truth in student's notebook:

from pp 504-507:

polyhedron (copy labeled sketch) - mention face, edge, vertex.

regular polyhedron

prism (mention bases, lateral faces)

sphere (mention great circle)

hemisphere (mention base)

Please make arrangements for make-up tests ASAP! Thank you!
