  • Welcome to Second Quarter!

    Posted by Andrea Giberson on 10/15/2019

    Welcome to 2nd quarter.  For me, this is the quarter that flies by!  Please be sure to check here weekly for updates on assessments and other items of interest.  All underclassmen are taking the PSAT this week and block days will be on Thursday and Friday this week.  Best of luck to everyone tomorrow on their PSAT.  It's great practice for the real thing and if you ordered the score report, it gives specific feedback on ways to improve.  As always, please contact me with questions or concerns.  

    Many thanks for your continued support!

    Mrs. Giberson

  • Holiday weekend is near!

    Posted by Andrea Giberson on 8/29/2019

    Parents:  As we approach the first 3 day weekend of the school year, I just want to touch base.  We had a short quiz yesterday on proofs and conditional statements.  We have been working on transformations and will have a quiz next Wednesday.  Students should spend a few minutes each evening reviewing notes or working problems.  Students should be able to access the online geometry book through the CUSD website.  Mathbitsnotebook.com and Khan Academy are excellent resources for videos and problem sets for any topics that are tough.  Also, students should be taking advantage of time before and after school, as well as SUCCESS to get additional help.  No homework this weekend that is assigned, but with a quiz on Wednesday, students may want to spend a little time reviewing their packets between now and Wednesday.  Enjoy the holiday weekend!

  • Time flies!

    Posted by Andrea Giberson on 8/19/2019

    Sorry about the gap in the posts.  I try to get at least one post a week up and last week that didn't happen.  The first geometry test went pretty well.  The mistakes that were made across the board were not mistakes of understanding; rather, in most cases, they were mathematical errors.  Today we are working on constructions and will move into Unit 2 this week.  Unit 2 deals with logic statements as well as proofs.  While this is one of my favorite units, students often have difficulty.  We will be working problems in class and students will be watching videos at home.  Encourage them to watch more than once and to try all the problems on their own in the notes before viewing the solution.  As a reminder, students are welcome to come in mornings after 7 or afternoons until 3:15.

  • First unit test is near

    Posted by Andrea Giberson on 8/9/2019

    We are fast approaching our first unit test for Honors Geometry.  The test will be Wednesday during block day.  I will hand out a review packet in class on Monday and we will spend Tuesday during class preparing for Wednesday's test.  Students who need extra help should come in and see me on Monday, before or after school, Tuesday after school (there is a faculty meeting Tuesday morning so I won't be in my room), or Wednesday morning.

  • First Quiz is in the books

    Posted by Andrea Giberson on 7/31/2019

    Good morning parents and students.  The first quiz is going in the gradebook today.  Please remember that there is only one quiz so far and that is 75% of the semester grade.  No need to be concerned.  I will go over the quizzes with all students on Friday.  Have a great rest of the week!

  • Welcome to Geometry!

    Posted by Andrea Giberson on 7/23/2019

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am excited to be teaching Geometry this year.  This week in Geometry we will be reviewing some Algebra concepts to kick off our year.  Students will be watching 3 videos and taking notes this week.  I have assigned one for each of the next 3 nights, but if students want to knock them all out at once, that's fine.  Students are only taking notes.  We will do the practice problems in class.  Each video is between 15 and 20 minutes long.
