Course name: Geometry

Course number: 7912065

Teacher: Drew

Objective:

The purpose of this course is to develop geometrical and general mathematical concepts and processes that can be used to analyze and solve a variety of routine and non-routine real-world and mathematical problems.

Description:

This course will provide the student with experiences and activities that relate to the value of geometry in life. Emphasis is placed on the use of reasoning skills, and two and three-dimensional modeling to solve problems, both mathematical and real-world.

Classroom expectations:

The teacher will provide accommodations and modification to allow all students to participate in class to their fullest ability.

Students are expected to:

1)      Respect Peers, Staff, and Yourself

2)      Respect Class Time

3)      Respect School Property

4)      Be Where You Are Supposed to Be

Assessment:

Based on individual student needs the student may be assessed using any combination of:

         cumulative projects

         work portfolio

         written assessment

         verbal assessment

         teacher and staff daily observation

Grading:

         20% completed in-class assignments (ie. Given appropriate accommodations, was the student able to independently complete the classwork for the day)

         40% completed end of topic assessments (ie. Given appropriate accommodations and modifications the student is able to demonstrate a working knowledge of the topic based on the sunshine state standards)

         10% daily demonstration of appropriate behavior during class (ie. Given appropriate accommodations the student will demonstrate behavior that is conducive for their own learning and the learning of their peers)

         30% participation (given appropriate accommodations and modifications the student will engage in classroom activities)
