Below are a list of the key concepts discussed in this this course. CPM offers students the opportunity to learn by discovery and collaboration with peers.
Key concepts addressed in this course are:
- Transformations(reflection, rotation, translation, dilation) And symmetry
- Relationships between figures (such as similarity and congruence) in terms of rigid motions and similarity transformations
- Properties of plane figures
- Prove geometric theorems (investigate patterns to make conjectures ,and formally prove them)
- Modeling with geometry
- Measurements of plane figures (such as area, perimeter ,and angle measure)
- Theorems about circles ,including arc lengths and areas of sectors
- Measurements of three dimensional shapes (such as volume and surface area)
- Tools for analyzing and measuring right triangles, general triangles ,and complex shapes (such as the Pythagorean Theorem ,trigonometric ratios ,inverse trigonometry, and the Laws of Sines and Cosines)
- Geometric construction (with compass and straightedge)
- Algebra (with substantial review of writing and solving equations and multiple representation of functions)
- Probability(independence and conditional probability, compound events, expected value, and permutations and combinations)

- To build a strong foundation for the study of higher mathematics
- To apply geometric concepts to real-world situations.
- To communicate mathematical understanding effectively and formulate complete, logical arguments to support given conclusions.
- Use algebra to formulate and solve equations arising from geometric situations.
Your grades will be updated weekly online. Grades are calculated and weighted using three types of grades:
- Individual Tests (cumulative) – one per chapter
Each individual test will be composed of approximately 40% new material and 60% review material. If you are absent for an individual test you are expected to make it up the day you return to school.
- Checkpoints-short assessments composed of new material.
Participation and Assessments with Resources –15%
- Team Tests (cumulative) – one per chapter
If you are absent from a team test you will do the test individually using your book and notes as a resource.
- Participation quizzes
Formative Assessment – 25%
- Homework- late assignments are accepted one day late, but will not be given full credit.
- Quick checks
Daily Required Materials
3-ring binder with 5 tabs, 2 graphing notebooks, CPM textbook, TI-84 graphing calculator, pencils with erasers, a pen, compass, ruler and a protractor.
PLEASE SEEK HELP AS SOON AS YOU ARE EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTY.
- Team support
- CPM’s website has solutions and hints to many of the homework problems. Use it as a tool.
- Ask a parent or a friend-have a buddy you can contact at home with questions.
If you are absent, you need to check the class calendar for the assignment. Assignments for that class will be located in Google classroom. It is YOUR responsibility to make up missing assignments. If you have questions, see a classmate or Mrs. Hukill for extra help.
- Be ready to begin when the bell rings.
- Do your own work: cheating is never acceptable. Be aware that “sharing” information about a test or quiz is a form of cheating.
- Be patient and respectful of your group members.
- Remain in your seat until the bell rings.
Team Work Rules
- Only talk about math
- Do not talk to other groups.
- When you are stuck, ask everyone in your group before asking the teacher.
- Everyone should be working on the same problem at the same time.
