Hello! Welcome to Geometry for the 2017-2018 school year. In order to view the exact learning targets for this year, please see the Portland Public Schools link for the Learning Targets. We will be following those targets throughout the year.
Each topic will be introduced and assessed in class. Students will have class work which often will need to be finished at home for homework. I will check homework the following class period and provide them with a stamp in class when complete. The units below will be updated as we progress through the year.

Introductory Unit: Symmetry
Where do you see symmetry? It seems that these items attempt to be symmetric, but are merely an approximation of an exact symmetry. Your daily assignments are listed below the pictures.
Day 1: Welcome! Objective: Students will learn class routines, collect materials necessary for learning, familiarize themselves with other students and explore methods for learning. Notes: G0-1 Assignment: In-Class activity.
