Good afternoon everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend! We had a great start to our spirit week, including a house game that involved eating cookies and drinking milk!! We also had a chance to visit the Grade 10 Personal Projects. This is a project that the Grade 10's have been working on for some time and is their culminating yearly project.

Happy PJ Day!

Great job Daniel on the house game!

We have officially learned the last concept in this unit. Today we began Show What You Know and tomorrow we will start the review.

Key points to remember:

A polygon is a closed figure with 3 or more sides.

A quadrilateral is a type of polygon, but a quadrilateral has 4 sides.

3 types of triangles; an equilateral, isosceles, and scalene. An equilateral triangle has all 3 sides equal. An isosceles triangle has 2 equal sides, and a scalene triangle has no equal sides.


An acute angle is less than 90 degrees, a right angle is 90 degrees and makes an L. An obtuse angle is between 90 and 180 degrees. 180 degrees makes a straight line.

An acute triangle has angles less than 90 degrees, an obtuse triangle has angles greater than 90 degrees, and a right angle has one 90 degree angle.

A rectangle has 4 right angles, a parallelogram has 2 pairs of equal angles, and a kite has 1 pair of equal angles.

When looking at polygons, a regular polygon has all sides and all angles equal. For example a square and an equilateral triangle. An irregular polygon does not have any sides or angles that are equal. 

A net is a figure that shows all the faces of a given solid. It is a 3-D shape.


-Geometry math test will take place on Thursday, March 8
