Standards                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The State of  Michigan Content of Expectations covers the content for this course.   It can be found  at :  http://michigan.gov/documents/mde/Geometry_216636_7.pdf

Home Studies                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     I cannot emphasize how important home studies are. Please make every effort to complete them when they are assigned.  This will enforce what we have learned and promote your understanding of the material being taught during the next class meeting.  Homework for the week will be turned in at the end of the week.  You are responsible for keeping ALL assigned homework in a folder.  When it is asked for, you will be able to turn it in.  All submitted work will contain your name, date assigned, hour of class (on right side, top margin of paper) and the page or activity name on the left side (top margin)  

Conferences                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Parents can contact me at any time via e-mail or my call phone.   If you’d prefer a personal conference, please contact the office and set up a meeting time.

Class Website                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Once I get settled into the classroom, I plan to set up a website that will contain the lessons taught and with hope, taped lessons that can be watched by students who need review or who may be absent from class on a particular day.  The link to the website will be announced once I get set up on the website.  The website will also contain links for students to go to that will help them better understand a particular lesson taught.
