Julia Landon College Preparatory and Leadership Development School Curriculum Paper

Course Title: Geometry Teacher: Ms. Fenton

Mission Statement: Our Mission at the Julia Landon College Preparatory and Leadership Development School is to create college bound students with a deep commitment to public service and a true understanding of their leadership skills within the global community. Course Overview:
On completing Geometry, students will have developed the skills initiated in Algebra 1 and be able to:
 Use their problem solving skills in data organization, look for patterns, draw diagrams, make systematic lists/tables, find and solve sub problems, and write algebraic representations to make and test conjectures about angles, lines, congruence, polygons, circles, etc.; Communicate their mathematical understanding in clear conjectures, explanations and/or justifications; Understand and exploit the interdependence between Algebra and Geometry; Learn a core set of geometric facts and relationships about polygons, circles, prisms, congruence, measure, etc.; Use Coordinate Geometry as often as possible, particularly for the study of area, perimeter, transformations, congruence and functions; Develop spatial visualization skills and apply them to the study of three-dimensional figures; Develop familiarity with ratios, particularly in the areas of similarity, right triangle, trigonometry, and probability as well as moving away from ruleapplying approach to a rule-generated approach; Develop confidence in creating and persevering in their own mathematical approaches to problems together with the ability to assess when an approach is not working and new directions is needed.

Student Evaluation: Grades are based on a total points system and are subject to vary based on the number of tests, quizzes, projects, homework, classwork, and computer lab that we have during a particular quarter.
Extra Credit is available only to the entire class, not individually (Tests 40-65%, Quizzes 10-25%, Classwork/Homework 15-30%, Notebooks, projects, presentations, other 5-15%). Grade Point Average (GPA) = Total points earned ÷ Total points possible

Educational Materials:
Binder, Pencils, Paper, Graph Paper, Scientific Calculator, Dividers

Classwork/Homework/Late Work Policy:
Assignments will be posted on the assignment log for the class every day. Students are required to copy down all assignments on their assignment logs with the date and scores. Late homework will only be accepted for excused absence. In the event that a student is not able to attend class; upon return he/she should: Get the assignment from the assignment log, copy any notes and the BellRingers from the master notebook, pick up any work sheets in the designated manila folder, and sign up for missed quizzes and/or tests on the make up day sign up sheet. NO late homework accepted. ALL WORK MUST BE SHOWN Complete assignment Incomplete (more than half) No Assignment Using Ink No written problem ALL PROBLEMS MUST BE WRITTEN (Pencil Only)

10 points 7 points 0 points 0 points (when redone in pencil, 5 points) 0 points (Never just answers)

Make-up Work Policy:
If a student is absent the Duval County Policy will be followed. Students should look at their monthly calendar to keep up with assignments when they are absent from school. My blog will also have all of this information.

Grade Recovery Policy:
Students will be offered grade recovery as outlined in the Duval County Pupil Progression Plan found on the Duval County Public Schools web page.

Parent/Teacher Conferences:
Please call our guidance office at 346-5650 extension 114 to schedule an appointment.

Tutoring Schedule: I am the TEAM UP coordinator and available on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:45 P.M. – 4:45 P.M. If your
child is not in Team Up and needs tutoring they must set up an appointment and can come from 2:45-3:30 but must have transportation home and picked up promptly.

Grading Scale:
Students will be evaluated in accordance with the standard Duval County Public Schools’ grading scale.

Progress Report Dates:
In addition to report cards issued at the end of each quarter, students will receive progress reports on September 8 and 29, November 7, December 5, February 9, March 3, April 22, and May 13. Students earning a grade of“D”or “F” on a progress report will be required to return the progress report signed by the parent/guardian within two days

Other Information:
Weekly Progress Reports – Weekly Progress reports will be given out on Friday and must be signed and returned for a homework grade on Monday. Late Progress Reports will only be accepted for an excused absence. Binder Requirements – Binders must be brought to class everyday with your book inside. This will be graded biweekly for a quiz grade (50 points). Binders must be in the following order: Assignment Log, FCAT Reference Sheet, Course Curriculum Paper, Divider #1 BellRinger, Divider #2 Classwork/Homework, Divider #3 ToolKit/Notes, Divider #4 Test/Quizzes/Projects, Divider #5 Graph Paper. Review the binder rubric to make sure you have all of the requirements to receive full credit. Late binders will only be accepted for an excused absence. If a student is absent they will be responsible for turning in their binder on the day they return. CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR POLICY • Respect Others - Show the same courtesy to others as you would want shown to you. • Be Prepared - Have all school supplies (paper, PENCIL, binder, textbook) readily available when you come to class. • Stay On Task – Work on math in math class. If you finish your classwork, get to work on your homework. If you finish your homework, review for an upcoming test, work on a project; organize your notebook, etc. • Follow Directions - All directions and procedures will be clearly written and/or explained to you. Before you ask me to explain the instructions or procedures again make sure you have read through them carefully.

CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS 1. 2. Be on time. Follow the Structured Movement Plan. We need to maximize the time we have. Come in, gather supplies and go straight to your seat. Stay seated until you have been given permission to move. You may sharpen your pencils before class, and throw away your trash after class. Show respect towards other people, their opinions, and their things. You want and deserve the same respect shown toward yourself. Raise your hand and wait to be called on before speaking. Come to class prepared. To be productive, you will need all classroom supplies pencils, pens, paper, your textbook, notebook, and planner. No food, drink, or candy is allowed. No personal grooming. Combs, brushes, sunglasses, fragrance sprays, and make-up are not appropriate in the classroom. Respect the authority of all school personnel. We are all here to work and help each other.
