Math Enrichment C - Geometry Syllabus Spring 2011 Semester



• Hints for Saxon Geometry:

  • These videos and personally scanned textbook lesson pages are on my "personal cloud" using my Pogoplug(TM)hardware and my 2TB Seagate Free Agent GoFlex drive.
  • Link to personally scanned and posted textbook lesson pages - including Warn Up, New Concepts, Lesson Practice, Practice - nice to have this displayed while the corresponding video is played - file nomenclature PPP.LLL.description.pdf where PPP is 3-digit page number and LLL is the 3-digit lesson number.
  • Link to all the current posted videos - videos to the posted lessons' New Concepts, Examples, Lesson Practice (usually Independent Practice), and Practice (usually 6 Practice problems are selected as homework problems)
  • Links to videos for individual textbook lessons below.
    • all lesson instructions (file nomenclature: ge_LLL_les.swf where LLL is the 3-digit lesson number)
    • all solutions to "Lesson Practice" problems (with the lower-case letters, independent practice class work, file nomenclature: ge_LLL_prac.swf where LLL is the 3-digit lesson number),
    • all solutions to "Practice" problems (all 30 numbered problems, selected ones for homework, file nomenclature: ge_LLL_PP.swf where LLL is the 3-digit lesson number and PP is the 2-digit problem number [1..30]), and
    • "Labs" (file nomenclature: ge_lLL.swf where LL is the 2-digit lab number)
    • "Investigations" (file nomenclature: ge_iLL_les.swf and ge_iLL_prac.swf where LL is the 2-digit lesson number)
  • Playing SWF files: On the SWF file that you would like to play, click on the downward pointing arrow to download and play. If your computer/browser you are sitting behind does not have an SWF player, then use "Open with" and select "Internet Explorer" from the list.
