GEOMETRY RESOURCES“Don’t just read it; fight it! Ask your own questions, look for your own examples, discover your own proofs. Is the hypothesis necessary? Is the converse true? Where does the proof use the hypothesis?” – Paul HalmosI love this quote! Geometry is a course where you must actively engage the material. You cannot simply sit around like a bump on a log and expect to learn the material. Use the following tips to help you engage the material.Tips for Success in Geometry:
- Review your class notes every night.
- Always check your homework answers in the back of the book. Clearly mark which problems are wrong, so that you remember to ask about them. Also, write in the margin what the answer should have been, so that you can retry the problem after you ask for help (and you'll know if you got the problem right the second time or need more help)!
- Explain your homework answers whenever possible (even if the directions don't say to)! WRITE OUT the def/post/thm used, so that you see your vocabulary in action and understand WHY you did the problem the way you did!
- Work with flashcards every night. Think deeply about the words in each definition and why they're necessary! Study old flashcards, too; Geometry is very cumulative!
- Do the extra practice worksheets (to access the extra practice sheets, click the link on the left for the current chapter)
- Write down questions that you would like to ask (about the notes, homework, extra practice worksheets, vocabulary, etc.)...and then ask them during class - or get a pass to ask them during resource ASAP!
