MYP Geometry-Period 8 (Period 8)

Instructor
Lori Raffanti
Department
Mathematics

Course Description

In MYP Geometry, students will reason inductively to construct geometric patterns, discover geometric relationships and formulate conjectures. Students will reason deductively to construct logical arguments and proofs using appropriate terminology. All students should regularly be engaged in the Standards for Mathematical Practice as defined by the Common Core. Mathematical content should be addressed through the study of big ideas allowing students to see the connections between multiple concepts. The mathematical content of Geometry includes Similarity and Congruence, Transformational Geometry, Right Triangles, Geometric Constructions and Proofs, Measurement and Dimension, Modeling, Coordinate Geometry, and Circles.


Cell Phone Policy

Cell phones or any other electronic device is brought to school at the student’s own risk. Amundsen High School will not be responsible for any lost or stolen technology device

  1. Students will be allowed to use their electronic devices in common areas during passing periods.
  2. Electronic devices are allowed in the passing period and the cafeteria during a student’s lunch period.
  3. Use of electronic devices in the classroom is prohibited, unless otherwise authorized by a teacher. (A.

  4. Charging electronic devices in the classroom is prohibited and NOT to be done at any time.

 Cell Phones are not to be used as calculators or to check the time.
