10 thoughts on “Geometry

  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!

  3. Hey Dane,

    You mentioned before your school’s resource is Big Ideas….Do you ever use the Student Journals or Textbooks for anything during your lesson’s or for homework problems outside of class?

    1. Hey Jake,

      I mainly use the book to find more challenging questions and to help guide the order I teach topics. I don’t use student journals. Everything on the curriculum page here is what I give in class. I don’t give homework. Thanks for the questions!

      1. I appreciate your response! Thank you very much. Again, I absolutely love what you have done with the Geometry curriculum and I am going to try to follow this model and use what you have! I’ve looked through just about everything and love how you engage the students and work through lots of different activities throughout the class. I like how you do ungraded formative assessments to see where kids are at, I like the spiraling idea, and I really like the concepts quizzes and how it relates to standards based grading. Last question….If I use all of these resources this coming year in my geometry class should I be making copies of all the google docs and keeping them in my drive so I have them and I know they won’t change? I ask that out of fear of losing the documents because of things that get changed or deleted or if for some reason the site ever went away and I didn’t have access to these materials halfway through the year all of a sudden and I haven’t made my own copies in my google drive. Any thoughts on that?

        Also I am REALLY looking forward to see what you end up doing with Algebra, as I see it’s a work in progress and lots of links are under construction and being edited. Do you plan on updating that throughout this school year by chance?

      2. Thanks so much again for the positive feedback, Jake! It really means a lot. Although I don’t plan on getting rid of the site at any point, it may be a good idea to make copies of the documents because I usually update them here and there each year. I’ll always have the docs posted, but the content may change depending on student needs or new ideas. Also, I am planning on updating the Algebra 1 materials throughout this school year. It’ll probably be a slow process.
