No homework. Enjoy your weekend.

1. Know
precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and
line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a
line, and distance around a circular arc.

2. Represent
transformations in the plane using, e.g., transparencies and geometry software;
describe transformations as functions that take points in the plane as inputs
and give other points as outputs. Compare transformations that preserve
distance and angle to those that do not (e.g., translation versus horizontal
stretch).

3. Given
a rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, or regular polygon, describe the
rotations and reflections that carry it onto itself.

4.
Develop definitions of rotations, reflections, and translations in terms of
angles, circles, perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and line segments.

5. Given
a geometric figure and a rotation, reflection, or translation, draw the
transformed figure using, e.g., graph paper, tracing paper, or geometry software.
Specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a given figure onto
another.

6. Use
geometric descriptions of rigid motions to transform figures and to predict the
effect of a given rigid motion on a given figure; given two figures, use the
definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to decide if they are
congruent.

7. Use
the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to show that two
triangles are congruent if and only if corresponding pairs of sides and
corresponding pairs of angles are congruent.

8.
Explain how the criteria for triangle congruence (ASA, SAS, and SSS) follow
from the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions.

12. Make
formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and
straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric
software, etc.). Copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment;
bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the
perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a
given line through a point not on the line.

13.
Construct an equilateral triangle, a square, and a regular hexagon inscribed in
a circle.

Homework is always out of 4 points. Students who score between 75% and 100% correct on their work will earn a 4. Scores between 50% and 74% will earn a 3. Scores between 25% and 49% will earn a 2. Scores less than a 2 should really be reworked for understanding and completion. Missing assignments earn a 0.

Homework that is turned in late, even due to an absence, will be graded after all other assignments have been graded. This means that the assignment will be marked as 0 and missing in Skyward until I have time to correct it. This may take up to two weeks.

Quizzes will usually be worth 10 points. Quizzes may or may not be announced in advance. There are no quiz retakes.

Tests will be worth 50-100 points. Tests will always be announced in advance. There are no test retakes.

I do not offer extra credit. Students need to come to class prepared every day with all assigned work completed. Fully studying for tests and quizzes needs to occur before the test as this is an essential skill for your education.

First Day of School - September 9th

Supply List

I want to welcome you and your family to Jefferson Middle School. I am looking forward to working with you and your student this year. Our math program is student centered, hands-on, and offers many opportunities for meaningful discussions. The students at Jefferson who are most successful in this class have four strategies in common: they care about their learning, they fully participate in class, they do quality nightly homework, and they attend school each day.

To help students be even more successful with math, we provide after-school help in the Library, Monday through Thursday 2:30 - 3:30pm.

Feel free to contact me at azieske@osd.wednet.edu or stop by room 26 before or after school.
