always, sometimes, never

Thursdays are ALWAYS my favorite day! I do have to tutor tonight to make-up for being out of town for Thanksgiving, but that’s ok because Friday is right around the corner

My geometry students have been deep into studying quadrilaterals and parallelograms. I’ve put together as many Always, Sometimes, Never questions that I could find and explained each one in my video. My students have trouble understanding these types of questions…ALWAYS lol!

Here is an image of the questions if you’d like to try to work through them on your own first:

And here is a video which explains the correct answer to each one!

See you tomorrow for some Algebra! And don’t forget to send me any questions you might have because I will post a #mathsaverfavor video on Friday with answers and explanations!

no rest for the weary

It’s my favorite day of the week again, and I can almost smell Thanksgiving…it’s that close! I have a very busy weekend of tutoring ahead on both Saturday and Sunday so I just have to push through!

My honors Geometry students have been studying parallelograms, rectangles, rhombuses, squares, kites and trapezoids. I always get a LOT of questions about how to tell one from the other when they aren’t drawn to scale. Teachers also love to give “always, sometimes, never” questions throughout this chapter which can be very confusing to my students. I’ve drawn a few diagrams in my video that will help you visualize everything that’s going on!

My regular Geometry students have their big test next week on proving triangles congruent. The final sections they’ve been learning are how to go beyond CPCTC and also how to use the HL Postulate. The proofs have gotten a bit longer and a little more difficult.

And don’t forget to send me any questions that you might have since tomorrow I’m making time for a #mathsaverfavor! We don’t call it Math Favor Friday for nothing ðŸ˜‰
