    Course Description:


    The objective of this course is to explore every facet of lines, polygons, as well as two and three-dimensional shapes, beginning with a strong foundation at the start of the year progressing to the application of both inductive and deductive reasoning to geometric problems involving lines, planes and polygons. This course is developmental and requires active participation through cooperative learning groups, interaction with the teacher, and the use of technology.

    As per our Curriculum Guide and Textbook, we will be covering the following Chapters:

    Chapter 1:  Tools of Geometry

    Chapter 2: Reasoning and Proof

    Chapter 3: Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

    Chapter 4: Congruent Triangles

    Chapter 5: Relationships in Triangles

    Chapter 6: Quadrilaterals

    Chapter 7: Proportions and Similarity

    Chapter 8: Right Triangles and Trigonometry

    Chapter 9: Transformations and Symmetry

    Chapter 10: Circles

    Chapter 11: Areas of Polygons and Circles

    Chapter 12: Extending Surface Area and Volume


    Classroom Expectations:


      • Students are expected to be on time or arrive with a signed appropriate pass. Students will not be sent out of class to go to their lockers for failing to come prepared. Being on time means being seated and ready to work when the bell rings! School Tardy Policy will be strictly enforced.

    • CalculatorGrading Procedure:
    • Major Assessments (Tests)………………………………......50%
    • Minor Assessments (CW, HW, Quizzes).……..…………….50%



    • Homework will be assigned, collected and graded. Students are expected to complete homework on a daily basis when assigned.
    • Each assignment will have a 100 point value. It is the expectation that all appropriate work is shown. Quizzes taken directly from the homework will be given on a regular basis in some cases without notice. These grades will be included in the Formative Assessment category.


    • It is the expectation of the Woodbridge High School Mathematics Department that all assignments be submitted by the due date.  Late assignments will be accepted, 10 points will be taken off for each day after the due date. Any assignment which is not handed in 3 days after the due day will result in a zero. However, assignments handed in beyond the 3 day period if completed correctly will still be accepted with the highest attainable grade being a 50.  Any student who is absent will be allowed to make up work and will receive credit for that work. Students will be given 2 days for every day absent and/or suspended to complete make up assignments. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure they check the school wires web page and/or my Google classroom for any and all make up work.
