    Geometry vs. Common Core Geometry

    Geometry is co-taught in the Innovation Lab with Mrs. Bindemann & Mrs. Kwak. It is project-based, and students are allowed to take the Geometry Regents Exam at the completion of the course. There is an in-class final project that is used as 20% of the final grade. Students that choose to take the Common Core Regents Exam must review with Mrs. Bindemann prior to being able to take it.

    If a student takes the regents exam and passes, it may substitute for a Social Studies Exam or Science Exam. Also, the student may move on to Algebra II, and may try to pursue an advanced regents dipolma.

    If a student takes the regents exam and fails, the grade is not used in any calculations in their Geometry grade. 

     

    Homework Assignments

    Homework will not be given. Occasionally, you may need to finish an assignment at home.   

     

    Class Notes/Warm-ups

    Class notes should be dated daily. In case of an absence, it is the student’s responsibility to retrieve the class notes and homework.  If you have been legally absent, you may complete the missing work, in a timely manner, without penalty. Missed quizzes/tests must be made up within one week during the advisement period after school. Class notes and warm-ups will be checked periodically for a grade.
