This week we will complete Unit 1 so you will review on Wednesday and test Thursday. Friday, we will begin Unit 2 and it starts with constructions of basic geometric shapes like perpendicular line segments and angle bisectors. We talked on the first day of school about you getting your own personal compass. Please have those ready to use in class by Friday. I also sent a reminder on Remind101. The compasses can be found at any local store (Walmart, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Walgreens, etc.)
