Schedule at a Glance (see archives for older entries)
Written assignments should follow the HW guidelines.


W 5/25/05

Review/Extra Help Session, 2:00 p.m., Room R. Stay for a short time or for a long time. We will cover any problems from the review problem compendium that you wish, or any other questions you may have related to geometry. Feel free to invite your friends from the other geometry sections to come. Please sign the list on the door of Room R so that I can estimate how many people will be coming.


Th 5/26/05

Final Exam, 2:00 p.m., Trapier Theater. Bring several sharpened pencils and, if you wish, a compass and straightedge. Paper will be provided. No cell phones are allowed for anyone, and no calculators are allowed for E and F period students.

In addition to studying the review problem compendium, you may benefit from familiarizing yourself with the planned exam format and the area/volume formula sheet that will be provided.
