FOR GEOMETRY in the Fall 2018, join Mrs. Coats Geometry Class with KHAN ACADEMY by going to www.khanacademy.org/join then entering the class code NRTGJBCS and pressing Add. If you don’t already have an account, press “Create a new account”. You should sign up with an email address NOT google. Neither your full first name or your full last name should be used and information can be falsified. I will collect your fabricated name in class so I can monitor your progress. Assignments will be given in class throughout the course. Students will need access to computers for their assignments.
One of the forms that need to be turned in at the beginning of the year is listed here: Form from Agenda
Mrs. Coats will offer tutoring at lunch but the schedule will depend on her duty schedule.
All contact should be to Catherine.Coats@JPPSS.K12.LA.US . If I have not replied within 24 hours, please call the school as it means that I did not receive your email.
Supply list for Engineering 2018-19: Syllabus: Coats Syllabus Engineering (8/3/18)
Students should bring to school daily: Pen, pencil, straight edge, Graph Composition Book (9.75″ x 7.5″ Graph Paper Notebook), and a folder with pockets for handouts (must be used exclusively for engineering). For the classroom, please bring in: A roll of paper towels and either a container of disinfecting wipes or a box of tissues. Most assignments will be done on the computer. Students will need an email address to use in Google Drive. The email address is required to start with the student’s initials and should not contain the student’s full first name or last name. I would suggest setting up a new account for this class (it can also be used for Robotics), because we will be using it very frequently. There is a $15 fee for this course. Checks can be made out to Haynes Academy.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 1st, Mid Module Assessment, HW due and Interactive Notebook Check.
What to study: The handout that had info about dilating with coordinates using the origin as the center of dilation. Be able to explain how similarity and dilations are related (using triangles). Know the definition of “not colinear.” Prove in a paragraph that a pre-image and its dilated image are similar (triangle). Know that when an image is similar to its pre-image, all sets of corresponding sides have the same ratio AB/A’B’ = CD/C’D’. Know that “algebraic” means the use of letters to represent numbers. Note that the only criterion we have learned to prove similarity of a triangle and its dilated image is the AA criterion. Know the formula for the area of a square. Know that the distance from the COD to the new point DIVIDED by the distance from the COD to the old point, EQUALS the scale factor (r). Know the definition of MIDPOINT. Know that when you dilate a figure, all sides change by the same ratio. If one does not change then it is NOT SIMILAR or NOT a proper dilation. Recall Pythagorean theorem. Use AA criterion to prove in paragraph form that two triangles are similar. Describe the construction steps of a dilation. In a drawing of an image and a pre-image, can you find the center of dilation? Review AA, SAS, and SSS Criterion for similarity.

L21 – Page 155 a&b. Use the Pythagorean Theorem. Page 156 Example 1 – for b, redraw all 3 and relabel. Continue with 157. Example 2. For the table at the bottom, show ratios in the form 3:6. For the table, you are not solving, you are just showing the ratios. Continue with page 159&160. Exit ticket will be very similar to page 158. MAKE SURE YOU NAME TRIANGLES IN ORDER OF CONGRUENCE. Right Angle Symmetry
L22 – page 163 #1-4. Pages 165 #6&9. Page 165. Page 167 #17, Page 168, and then #12 on p.169. Remember that when you are simplifying radicals in fractions that you need to get rid of the radical in the denominator.
L23 Page 173#4&5. Page 174 #6 Find All. Example 2&3 page 175. Page 177 #8&9
L24 Page 179 and 180. Page 183 #1-4.
L25 – Page 185#1-3. Know definitions for adjacent, opposite, and hypotenuse. Page 185 #4&5. For page 186&187, you have a handout with the answers. Make sure you know where the numbers are coming from. You do page 188. Remember that you have learned 3 similarity criteria: AA, SAS, and SSS
L26 – Homework is the handout on Trigonometric ratios (front and back). On the top of L25 handout, add the headers Sin and Cos. Work with your ratios and your calculator so you can see where the numbers are coming from. Do page 200. Exit ticket #26 is like page 200. You need to understand how Sin and Cos are complimentary functions. Sin (Theta) = Cos (90-Theta) by that same definition, Cos(Theta) = Sin(90-Theta)
L27 – We do page 207 and 209. Mrs. Coats will give you a handout for your Interactive Notebook. It should be page 78. Review this page THOROUGHLY! Ask questions if there is something you don’t understand. Do page 210. Complimentary Angles mean that the two of them sum to 90o. Review the special triangle info on your Interactive Notebook page. 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 Triangles.
L28 – We do Page 213 and #2 on page 214. Important: Remember that you can draw an altitude to make 2 right triangles out of 1 Non-right triangle.
L29 – Tuesday – HW Handouts, Do page 219, Slope=Rise/Run. Review what a negative slope looks like.
End of Module Test on all covered lessons from Module 2 will be Thursday, 10/11. 10/11 will also be the deadline for exit ticket retakes, IN will be checked, and homework is due(including handouts). What to study for the EOM Test for Module 2: Make sure you do all the HW worksheets given Friday and Tuesday. If you don’t understand something, ASK! (Email me if needed) These are very representative of Test Questions. You need to know how to prove the Pythagorean Theorem using similar triangles. You need to review Similarity criteria (AA mostly) and review how to use parallel lines and transversals to see which angles are equal. SOH CAH TOA. If two angles are complementary, what does that mean? What is the relationship between tan alpha and tan beta? You need to know how to use your calculator to get the ratios for the side lengths of a right triangle given an angle measure. Review Pythagorean Theorem. You need to remember that when you have a smaller triangle inside a bigger one… sometimes the bigger one gives lots of info. Draw them separately and see if you can figure out what the question is asking. Info sheet for day Academic Games was out is here. Right Angle Symmetry and Trig Intro
M3L1 What Is Area – Leaving a number as a radical or a fraction is more PRECISE than estimating or rounding as a decimal. If you have an unusual shape and you put a rectangle around the outside of it to calculate area, that is called over-approximation. If you put a rectangle (or triangle) inside it to calculate area, that is called under-approximation. Once you get these two values, you can add them together and divide by 2 to get the average, which will be a more accurate approximation than either the over or the under approximation.
WORK: Page 1&2, pages 4&5, HW page 6.
M3L2 Properties of Area – Review Intersections (Overlap of two figures). If you have the area of two figures and they overlap, you can add the two areas together and then subtract the area of overlap. Otherwise, you would be adding the same overlap area twice.
WORK: Page 9 #1-4 HW pages 12-13 #2-5
8/10 Please get supplies and get forms signed. Instructions will come from the school soon on how to pay course fees online, so you can hold off and pay online, if you want, once the instructions come. THANKS.
