This is a quick post about the upcoming geometry test, serving both as a reminder and a vessel of convenience.
FOR GOLD DAY STUDENTS: Friday, May 5
FOR PURPLE DAY STUDENTS: Monday, May 8
Additional information on the test:
-2 “Exercises” (i.e. sectors and regular polygons, such as the problems seen on the quiz)
-16 Word Problems:
-1 pyramid L.A.
-2 sphere S.A. –> volume, and vice versa
-1 cone & sphere volume (ice-cream cone problem)
-3 cylinder & sphere volume (think of tennis balls in a cylindrical container)
-1 sphere S.A. –> diameter
-1 Euler’s theorem
-1 prism S.A.
-1 cylinder volume
-1 sphere & prism volume
-2 similar solids
-1 pyramid volume
-1 platonic solids
Please keep in mind:
- WHEN DOING SURFACE AREA: DON’T COUNT IN A SIDE OF A COMPOUND FIGURE THAT IS ON THE INSIDE
- WHEN DOING PRISMS: MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT THE BASES ARE! REMEMBER: PARALLEL AND CONGRUENT; THAT’S HOW I PITCH MY TENT (Or something like that… I just made that up.) (And hey, tents are triangular prisms!)
A final note: If there is something inaccurate, confusing, or unsatisfactory on this post, or you’d simply like help on something, feel free to leave a comment.
That should be all. Have a good day, friends, and good luck on the test.
