Homework.
While completing homework assignments, write down any questions you have and give them to me at the beginning of the period.  Skip that exercise and move to the next. If you cannot move on unless your question is answered, look for the explanation and examples at the homework section of this web site.

Definitions:
If you do not know the terminology, then you will not understand the explanations.  You may do the definitions section by section or all at one time.  If you do them all at one time, make sure you have them when you are working on your exercises and activities.

Theorems, postulates, corollaries, and conjectures:
These are "rules" that help prove procedures are valid.  Many of them are common sense.  You do not have to memorize them as they are written in the text, but you must be able to logically and coherently state the concepts in your own words.  This means you must understand them to use them.

 Lesson Plans January 12 - 16

Monday,
January 12
Last weeks lesson plans were altered to give students more time to review Unit 4A. So we will pick up last Thursday and Friday's plans this week.
Give students progress report handouts from Easy Grade Pro.

Begin unit 4B
This is a review.  Most of the material was covered in chapter 3.
Explain "My geometric approach."
Homework review. Exercises 9 -30 pages 246 - 247.


Review counts as classwork.
"My geometric approach" is an exercise in which the students work a problem on a new concept.  They use prior knowledge to figure out how to solve the problem.  They write their thought processes on one side of the paper and solve the problem on the other."

See:  Thinking Through Mathematics, by Edward A silver, Jeremy Kilpatrick, and Beth Schelsinger.
