It will be 25 multiple-choice problems on the information from the first five units.Students can make and use a formula sheet and calculator during the exam.
Geometry
Students are completing a unit on Relationships in Triangles. They will also be exploring indirect reasoning and indirect proof. Following will be a study of quadrilaterals including parallelograms, rectangles, rhombi, squares, trapezoids and kites. Coordinate geometry proofs will be utilized to prove some of the properties of quadrilaterals.
Algebra 2
Students are beginning a unit on polynomials. Students will be able to graph and find roots of polynomial equations. Graphing calculator applications will be utilized
Study Skills
Students will finish writing their Letters of Gratitude and send them by US Mail to their intended recipients.
