    Welcome to Geometry class,

     I've been teaching over 30 years, with my last eleven at Timberline!   I love teaching Geometry!  I have a BA and Master’s degree in education.
     
    For Geometry class you will need these supplies daily:

    1)   Pencils or ERASABLE blue or black ink pens.  (Only blue or black ink.) 

    2)  Calculator:  A scientific calculator is adequate (TI 34 - or any calculator with trigonometry function keys; "sin" "cos" and "tan." Check online for used calculators, cheap!   FYI: Early in the school year, the THS library has calculators to check out and later your counselor can help you find one if finances will be troublesome. 
     
    3) Notebook:  A graph paper or grid paper notebook is preferred.   You keep all homework in your notebook.  If you get a spiral notebook and loose graph paper, you can insert graph paper.   Sometimes other worksheets can be taped into this math notebook.  
     
    3)  Colored correction pen (NOT blue or black) to correct work in class.  You correct your own assignments and make corrections on assignments with this different color, for full credit.  Everyone makes mistakes and you can learn a lot from fixing your errors!  
     
    4)  A set of colored pencils or a highlighter would be very useful if you can get them.
      
    6)  We work out of "consumable" unit math books, you are given these when we begin new units.  Bring this booklet to class daily.
     
    7) A compass for our first unit is very useful.
     
    Glad to have you in class.  You'll learn a lot, and if you need more help with your math, you have MANY resources available!  Please talk with me to make arrangements if you'd like one-on-one help.  Possible options are before or after school.  We have a teacher supervised, math-lab on Tues and Thurs after school, with transportation provided home by district buses.   Peer Tutoring is available all day/any period/in the math hall.  Just ask me for a pass, in order to attend this tutoring.
     
    Have a great year.  I look forward to working with you in class,   
     
    Mrs. Kramer
