Welcome to Geometry! I am looking forward to a great year with you. A copy of this handy syllabus is available on my Wiki, so you can easily look up any information about this course.
1. Course Description
Geometry gives us the ability to move on to higherlevel math courses with an increased ability to apply algebra to the solution of problems involving measurement, physical relationships, and logical proof. We will be covering the following chapters:
Chapter 1: Tools of Geometry
Chapter 2: Reasoning & Proof
Chapter 3: Parallel & Perpendicular Lines
Chapter 4: Congruent Triangles
Chapter 5: Relationships in Triangles
Chapter 6: Quadrilaterals
Chapter 7: Proportions and Similarity
Chapter 8: Right Triangles & Trigonometry
Chapter 9: Transformations
Chapter 10: Circles
2. Course Objectives
In addition to understanding the above concepts, we will also have other fundamental goals to accomplish this year.
You will be able to communicate mathematical ideas orally and in writing
You will be an improved problem solver
You will be able to think critically and question ideas
You will learn how to work in teams to accomplish a task.
You will be able to relate mathematical ideas to the real world
Most importantly, you will have fun and learn to appreciate math!!!
3. Grading Procedures*
There will be 3 different types of assessments that will add towards your total points in this class. The more points you earn the higher your grade! Those assessments are:
Tests/Quizzes 60% of your grade will come from this type of assessment. There will be one quiz or project each week, not including a test week. Directions are the same as tests, except I will give at least 3 days prior notice. There will be one test per chapter. I recommend showing work because I will give partial credit for correct work shown (unless otherwise stated). I will give at least 5 days prior notice for each test. If you are absent for a test you must make it up before or after school.
Classwork/Projects 30% of your grade will come from this type of assessment. Projects will consist of individual, partner, and small group activities that will focus on applying math concepts. They may include presentations, papers, or labs.
Journals/Homework 10% of your grade will come from this type of assessment. There will be homework given on a day to day basis! Each assignment is worth 2 points. This is an ALL or NOTHING Grade, either you have every single question complete or you do not get credit. (IDK will never be acceptable as an answer!) Homework is for you to check your understanding of the concepts covered in class; it is not going to be a bulk of your grade. Journals will be completed Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each weeks worth of journals is worth 10 points for your Journal & Homework grade. You must complete the expected prompt within the parameters given or else credit will not be awarded.
*Any assignment not completed and turned in by the Friday of the week that it was due will lose a minimum of 50% on the assignment.
4. Classroom Expectations
Be Prepared
Be Respectful
Be Honest
Be Appropriate
Be Fair
5. Classroom Policies
CELL PHONES: Having cell phones on and out at all times is detrimental to receiving a good education, but on the other hand cell phones are useful to education at times. Students who are on their phones too often, or have them lying out on their desk too often will be put on Cell Phone Detox. That means if students have them lying out, or in their hands for too long of a time then I will take the phone and put it in my desk drawer until the end of the day. Cell phones left out charging in any of my covered outlets will be taken and put in my desk until the end of the day. On days of a test or quiz any cellphones out will result in a 0.
Please Initial that you have read and agree to the terms laid out by Mr. Gibson in his classroom. Student Initials:
Parent Initials:
Bathroom No restroom in the first 10 or the last 10 minutes of the class period.
Tardy Students who are unexcused tardy to class, meaning they do not have a pass from a teacher, will receive detention for the number of minutes tardy up to 15 minutes. After 15 minutes late the student has then cut class and a referral will be submitted. Students will also lose 1 point from their weekly journal page for each day late in a week.
Unexcused Absences  Students who are absent from class and fail to bring in an excuse note to the Attendance Office will not receive the grade for the test or quiz that they missed. Unexcused absences result in a 0.
Please Initial that you have read and agree to the policies laid out by Mr. Gibson in his classroom. Student Initials:
Parent Initials:
Late Work  Students who fail to turn in an assignment will receive a 0 if the work is not received within 2 days of the due date. Students cannot collect back work the final week of the marking period that they did not complete on time during the marking period, unless extenuating illness or circumstances deem it fitting to make up the work.
Please Initial that you have read and agree to the terms of late work, laid out by Mr. Gibson in his classroom. Student Initials:
Parent Initials:
Sign and Return for 5 bonus points in homework!
