Geometry: Vocab Pop Quiz Redos

Please note that this is different than what was announced in 1st hour.

Okay, so those were not as good as they should have been.  The reality is, folks, that we can't start to move towards success on Proofs if we don't have these rules memorized.  If we're working on a car together and I tell you I need a 3/4 in ratchet and I need it now, it doesn't do either of us any good for you to go online and look up what a ratchet is.  It's just something you need to know.

Because of how important vocabulary is I'm adding one more requirement for recovering lost points:  Posters.

Here's the breakdown:

If your quiz grade was 11-15:
Do the normal quiz redos.
If your quiz grade was 6-10:
Do the redo AND do one Theorem/ Postulate poster.
If your quiz grade was 5 or lower:
Do the usual redo AND do Two posters.

The requirements for the poster are:
  • Use roughly a half sheet of poster board (so about 1.5 by 2.5 feet)
  • Write out one theorem or posulate, including the name, and page number from the text.  The theorem should be in "If _____then ______" form.
  • Include an appropraite diagram.

All redos for chapter 3 content are due by Friday (test day)
