I just spent a very rewarding day at my daughter’s school, together with my husband, hosting their classroom holiday party! We had a lot of fun with a classroom full of 4th graders mainly just being silly and eating lots of treats! Next stop Christmas!!
My honors Geometry students have wrapped up their week with a test on the chapter regarding lines and planes in space. It’s a pretty short chapter which teaches the ways to determine a plane, how to prove that a line is perpendicular to a plane, and includes properties about parallel lines and planes. I’ve included a list of some tricky true/false questions which my students usually have trouble with.
My regular Geometry students were just tested on parallelograms. Their LEAST favorite type of problem is when they have to decide on the most descriptive name of a quadrilateral given four points on a graph. For most problems you can rely on just the slope and bypass using the distance formula…which they much prefer and it saves them a lot of time!
Stay tuned over Winter Break…I would love to answer any questions that you might have. Especially if you are like my own students and have 1st semester finals coming up in January! In the spirit of this season of giving, I would love to give out a #mathfavorsaver or two!
