GEOMETRY SYLLABUS 2017-2018
Tom Courson– Room 211
E-mail: thomas.courson@springbranchisd.com
Phone: 713-251-3400 ext: 3511
 
Course Description: Problem solving, language and communications, reasoning, and connections within mathematics to the real world are fundamental processes of Geometry. Geometry students have mastered algebraic concepts and use this knowledge as a bridge to explore Geometry.
 
I.              Materials needed daily:
·         Math binder or folder to keep homework, notes, and quizzes
·         Notebook paper or graph paper
·         Pencils and erasers (no work will be accepted in pen!)
 
II.            Grading Scale

            ·         Tests                      50%

            ·         Quizzes                  30%

           ·         Daily/Board            20% - may consist of notes, warm-ups, supplies, class work, and homework

 
III.          Class Rules:
·         Be on time! Be in your seat with all materials and homework out when the bell rings.
·         Come to class with your best attitude! Be respectful of your classmates and your teacher. Only positive comments and behavior are allowed.
·         Be productive! Work until the bell rings. You will leave class when you are dismissed by the teacher.
·         Cheating is not tolerated. The penalty will be a “zero” on the assignment/test for all involved, and the incident will be reported to the grade-level principal.
 
IV.         Homework Policy:
·         Homework is due at the beginning of the period. No late work will be accepted! Homework will usually be graded on completion.
·         Any work submitted for credit must be legibly written, and all work (calculations) must be shown. A list of answers with no work shown will not receive credit.
·         All work missed during an excused absence may be made up. The number of days missed will determine the length of time given to complete the make-up work. It is your responsibility to check the posted assignment sheet for all make-up work and to get it to me!
·         Any work missed for an extracurricular activity should be requested and completed before the day of absence.
 
V.           Tutorials:
·         My tutorials are every morning from  7:00 am-7:50 am. You must bring materials and questions. This is not a sit and watch session.
 
VI.         Make-up tests:
·         When absent on the day of the test, you are required to attend the next available math make-up session on Mondays, in Room 206, from 3:00-4:30 PM.

About Me

  • I graduated from Texas A & M University  with a Building Construction degree and played on the A & M  tennis team for four years on scholarship.  Prior to coming to Stratford I taught and played tennis professionally, and later worked as a project manager for a major Houston custom home builder.  The last thirteen years I have been teaching Geometry and the experience has been wonderful.  I'm lucky to be working with a great administration, faculty (math department is awsome), and students.
