SOLs!

As many of you already know and have already taken them, the SOLs are here! Please take the time to study for them, get good rest, and eat nutritiously so you can be as ready as you’ll ever be when you enter the tests. DO NOT bring electronic devices to the test. The Science SOL is Thursday, June 1st. If you need any help understanding something, have a studying question, or need any help, DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK MRS. CORTESI! It’s what she’s there for! Good luck to all and may the testing odds ever be in your favor!!!!!!!!

Geometry Unit 11 Test

This is a quick post about the upcoming geometry test, serving both as a reminder and a vessel of convenience.

-18 Questions

-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. WHEN DOING SURFACE AREA: DON’T COUNT IN A SIDE OF A COMPOUND FIGURE THAT IS ON THE INSIDE
  2. 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.
