Review in Geometry 

The review for the test went surprisingly well. There are still some basics that some kids lack and not all students have all the formulas that they need down, so I'm modifying tomorrow's review slightly. Today I had them work on end-of-chapter review questions in groups and the plan for tomorrow was for randomly selected students to put the answers to these questions on the board. The class would end with "lightning round" questions. Short-answer questions such as what equiangular polygon has angle measure 108o? I've modified this to include a lightning round at the beginning of class where we will come up with answers to questions whose answers are essentially the theorems from this chapter. This way we can have some hope of getting this information into everybody's notebooks, at least.
