The RR Geometry course is designed to help students become skilled in Geometry in the resource setting. Students will follow the same curriculum as all Geometry students in the district, with some modifications and supplemental activities and materials.
The goals of RR Geometry are that each student will become proficient in Geometry and have the ability to pass the district final exam. The course will prepare the students for the common core exam required for high school graduation and also prepare them for college.
Expected Student Learning Outcomes*
Upon completing the RR Geometry course, students should be able to:
- Work with basic geometric relationships involving angles, lines, and line segments.
- Perform geometric constructions.
- Perform geometric proofs.
- Calculate perimeter and area on the coordinate plane using distance, midpoint, and slope.
- Classify triangles on the coordinate plane.
- Transform figures on the coordinate plane.
- Use corresponding parts of congruent triangles to prove relationships.
- Understand congruence and similarity.
- Make conjectures and complete proofs related to the properties of circles.
- Understand and use trigonometric ratios.
Types of Assignments

- Bell work
- Worksheets of skills
- Journals/Response logs- Reflections
- Group Work- team building, cooperative learning, group presentations
- CC Preparation- practice tests, practice multiple-choice passages
- In-class activities.

It is important to attend class and participate in class discussions and activities. Please make sure you follow the district attendance policy in order to earn credit for the course.
You must be in class before the bell rings. There will be consequences enforced for all tardiness. If you are more than five minutes late for class, you will be marked absent.
Assignment/Make Up Policy
- I AM NOT INCLINED TO ACCEPT LATE WORK. However, I do understand that emergency situations may prevent a student from turning in an assignment on time. In these emergency situations, a student may submit a daily assignment no more than 2 days late. If there are extinuating circumstances, the student must speak to me privately and I will discuss with him/her on a one to one basis.
- MISSED ASSIGNMENTS ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY! If you have an excused absence that keeps you from either turning in an assignment or receiving instructions for an assignment, it is your duty to talk to me about the assignment as soon as you return.
- MAKE UP WORK is designated for students who have excused absences. If you are absent and it is excused, you must speak to me about any make up work the day you return. You will have only as many days as you were out to submit the assigned work. I am available during tutoring hours to discuss assignments missed. Please see me privately to discuss your assignments.
Expectations of Students
This is a collaborative learning classroom. Students are expected to be respectful to each other and the teachers at all times. Students will be given a warning if their behavior is outside the agreed classroom expectations. Further noncompliance will result in phone calls home and administrative intervention.
