Honors Geometry and Regents GeometryWelcome to Geometry with Mrs. Lahey
Course Description: The Geometry Regents course includes the full Common Core Geometry curriculum and your child will take the New York State Common Core Regents Exam at the conclusion of this school year. Topics include constructions, types of angles, transformations, similarity, trig functions, euclidean proofs, coordinate proofs, circles, 3 dimensional geometry, and more.
Materials: - pens or pencils - large 3 ring binder that will only be used for Geometry - scientific or graphing calculator (for homework) - loose leaf - graph paper - one compass and one ruler.
Homework Policy: There is homework almost every night that is required to be turned in via google classroom by the following class period for completeness. Students should come to class with a physical copy of their work and will be given the opportunity to ask any questions on the homework while I review the answers. Homework and classwork are checked for completeness and are graded out of 2 points. Every homework assignment is to be turned in and will be recorded. However, randomly chosen assignments will be graded. For the graded assignments you will receive 1/2 credit if it is turned in late.
Quizzes: Every 4 to 5 days there will be a quiz and the students will know about these quizzes in advance. Short pop quizzes will also be given. Quizzes range from 5 – 40 points.
Exams: There is one cumulative exam at the end of each quarter. Exams are worth 100 points. The midterm exam counts as the 2nd quarter exam and the regents exam counts as the fourth quarter exam.
Attendance Policy: For every day your child is absent that is the amount of days they will have to make up the material and missing assignments. If your child is absent on the day of a quiz, he or she will take the quiz the day they return to class.
Grades : A students average is based on total points. Each student will receive a grade sheet midway between school’s report cards and progress reports to keep everyone up to date. This means each student will know where they stand every two and half weeks. If there is a need for a more frequent update or any concerns please contact me via email.
Feel free to contact me about anything regarding your child. Please let me know if there is anything I should be aware of that will contribute to your child’s success. Thank you!
