Geometry

This curriculum is based on a schedule with 50 minute classes. In addition, I’m a believer in having a very flexible pace because I believe teachers should have discretion when determining how much time to focus on concepts. So, if your students need extra time with transformations, for example, then spend extra days with them. This curriculum is definitely not one size fits all, and I actually go at a different pace each year. Please feel free to use it as a guide, but certainly do not feel like you’re doing something wrong if you don’t follow it day by day.

  1. I teach algebra I and geometry. I found your website when looking into standards based grading this past August. I liked your format for SBG, and looked at your curriculum. I have been using it this year, with some minor changes. I really like the geometry and how it is flowing. My students have been learning about parallel lines crossed by a transversal, and I’m about to introduce proofs. I’m excited to do this with the mazes! Thank you for sharing all of this. I know you’ve put a lot of time and effort into it. It’s nice to find so many great resources in one place.
    I’m using some of the algebra work, but had to slow it down a little at the start. Most of my students weren’t ready for where your curriculum started. I will keep using resources from your curriculum, though, and I’m following your units and quiz techniques.
    Once again, thank you! !!

    1. Sarah,

      Thanks so much for the kind words! I really appreciate it. I’m glad it’s been useful so far! This is my first year teaching Geometry, so it’ll have to be adjusted over time. If you don’t mind sharing, I’d love to hear about/see some of the changes you made! Feel free to reply here or email me if that’s easier.

      Thanks again!

  2. I just stumbled onto your blog and am blown away! Thank you so much for sharing all of this. You’ve clearly put a lot of time and energy into it. You rock!
