GEOMETRY TERMS “NOTEBOOK” Name _______________________ # __________ Due Date_______________ As we begin our study of geometry, you will be creating a “notebook” of terms. This project must be completed according to the guidelines listed below. There will be some time given in class, so come to school prepared to work on it each day. Bring 5” x 8” or 4” x 6” index cards and colored pencils. I will provide you with a few cards to get you started. A ring to bind the book will be provided to you. In addition to the 20 terms, you must create a title page with your name and number and include the definition for geometry as stated on the next page. Each page must include the following: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Created on 4” x 6” index cards* (You will need 21 cards) Bold, clear titles of each term (One per card) Complete definition (Taken from the math book) An illustration that demonstrates the term An example from real life Formulas, if applicable This entire project should be neatly done Be creative! *(For extra credit, the entire book can be made in a geometric shape of your choice: square, rhombus, triangle, circle, octagon, etc. IF YOU CHOOSE THIS OPTION, YOU MUST USE 5” x 8” cards ) (1) (2) Term: (3) Definition (4) Illustration: Parallel Lines Parallel lines are lines that do not intersect because they are the same distance apart at every point. (5) Real-life Example: Title Page: Must include your name, number, the title: GEOMETRY, and the definition below: Definition: Geometry—(noun) geo, from the Greek, meaning the earth; and metre, from the French, meaning to measure. Geometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with points, lines, planes, and figures and examines their properties, measurement, and mutual relations in space. Geometric Terms for Notebook: (choose 20 from the list) 1. acute angle 2. acute triangle 3. angle 4. area 5. circle 6. circumference 7. compass 8. congruent 9. cylinder 10. diameter 11. equilateral triangle 12. hexagon 13. intersecting lines 14. isosceles triangle 15. line 16. line segment 17. obtuse angle 18. octagon 19. parallel lines 20. parallelogram 21. pentagon 22. perimeter 23. perpendicular 24. point 25. polygon 26. protractor 27. quadrilateral 28. radius 29. ray 30. rectangle 31. right angle 32. right triangle 33. scalene triangle 34. similar 35. straight angle 36. symmetry 37. trapezoid 38. triangle 39. vertex 40. volume Grading Criteria: You will be graded on the following: 1. Format (Follows directions on the layout for each page) 2. Completeness and quality of your notebook a. Proper terms b. Definitions/Formulas c. Illustrations d. Real-life examples 3. Design/Creativity (The more creative your cards, the better!) 4. Neatness (This entire project should be neatly done!) Extra Credit: You are required to do 20 terms. Any terms defined over 20 will be given one extra point for each additional term, with a limit of 10 extra points. _____________CUT AND RETURN THIS PORTION ONLY_______________ I understand my child must complete the Geometry Terms Notebook as outlined above by the due date.
