**Advanced Geometry**

## Class Description

Integrated Geometry Advanced is a yearlong course designed to instruct students in the concepts of high school level geometry.

## Essential Objectives

- Students will communicate number sense using multiple representations to reason, solve problems, and make connections within mathematics and across disciplines.
- Students will communicate geometric and measurement concepts using multiple representations to reason, solve problems, and make connections within mathematics and across disciplines.
- Students will communicate algebraic concepts using multiple representations to reason, solve problems, and make connections within mathematics and across disciplines.
- Students will communicate data analysis and probability concepts using multiple representations to reason, solve problems, and make connections within mathematics and across disciplines.

## Homework

Homework is designed for practice and is graded in class. Any problem that a student struggles with will be gone over during class time. As such, students are expected to take the time to correct

**ALL**problems that they miss on their assignments. All assignments should have a heading with the first and last name, the date assigned, the page number and the problems given.**All work must be shown to receive credit for assignments.**Homework will be checked daily to ensure that it is completed. All homework assignments are worth 3 points: 1 point for completion, 1 point for showing work, and 1 point for being done on time. Individual homework assignments are NOT calculated into a student’s final grade.## Formative Assessments

There are two types of formative assessments:

1.

2. District Designed Formative Assessments: Each unit has 2-4 formative assessments. These assessments are used as a gauge to determine if students are mastering material being taught over a longer period of time. District level formative assessments cannot be sent home with students. These assessments are returned and discussed in class. Parents are welcome to view these assessments by making an appointment.Formative assessments typically take one class period to complete. Students who have not achieved a proficient level will be required to show evidence of relearning before being re-assessed.

1.

**Chapter Quizzes:**Periodically, students will be given a quiz over concepts covered in class. This quiz is designed to show me the quality of student work and if students are mastering shorter term goals. These quizzes typically take less than one class period to complete. These quizzes can and should be corrected after grading. Full credit is given for problems missed and corrected.**Chapter quizzes are worth 10% of the final math grade.**2.

Each unit has a summative assessment at the end. Typically summative assessments are one period in length. Occasionally, however, summative assessments are spread out over 2 days. District level summative assessments cannot be sent home with students. These assessments are returned and discussed in class. Parents are welcome to view these assessments by making an appointment. These assessments are designed to show mastery of material in a unit.

**Summative assessments are worth 70% of the final math grade.**
