- Went over class procedures.
- Took a "warm up" test.
I would like you to briefly research an historical mathematician and write down 5-10 interesting facts to share with the class next week. Just jot down some facts; no need for complete sentences or a paragraph. You will receive participation points for this. Thank you.

- We went over the warm-up quiz from last week.
- We reviewed mathematical terms, definitions and symbols for different types of lines.
- We reviewed formulas for circumference, area and volume.
- We discussed the different types of triangles.
Homework: Read through chapters 1 and 2 for next week.

Our books have arrived! Yay!! We went over identifying lines, collinear points, planes, coplanar points and lines, intersecting lines and planes, line segments, congruent statements along with properties of congruence, naming rays and angles, classifying angles, addition of angles, and angle bisectors.
We were also introduced to "postulates": A statement that is accepted as true without proof. Woo Hoo! - no proofs. Well, at least not yet.
Homework: Lesson 1-all, Lesson 2-even, skip #2, Lesson 3-odd. Also, please try to get a compass, protractor and ruler to use in class and for homework.

We learned several postulates and theorems related to points, lines, and planes and their relationships which include intersections, parallel and perpendicular lines.
Homework: Lesson 4: 3-9, 11, 13, 15, 21, 22; Lesson 5: even
October 9, 2017
We studied complementary, supplementary, adjacent and vertical angles and solving equations using angle theorems. We practiced finding angle bisectors using a compass. We also learned about inductive reasoning and conjectures.
