2019–2020 Summer Math Preparation for Student StudentsChange Who Will Take Geometry of Address Form What is the aim of this assignment? Doing this assignment will help you review math that you will need to know for your math course next year. It will you realize what topics you need to fix up before starting that course so Student help Name: ______________________________________________________________ _ that we can spend less time reviewing and more time learning new material. Printing: Please print this file out. Do your work right on the sheet. If you need sheets, you can work on the back or staple additional pages. Student additional Grade: _________________________________ Showing your work:  You must work in pencil, not pen. Edit your mistakes and be neat. Parent/Guardian Name(s): ____________________________ ________________________________  Show all work, even for any multiple-choice questions, so that your teacher can see what you were thinking, give you feedback, and help you.

New Address: _______________________________________________________________ ______  Write your work clearly, so that someone else can follow your thinking. Use correct mathematics notation as well as English words.

City, State, ______ DueZip:______________________________________________________________ date: This assignment is due the first day of school. You have all summer to do this packet, but you really should start in July and work gradually so that you have time to do a great job. Home Phone Number: __________________________________________________________ _____ Grading: This assignment will be graded as part of your Quarter 1 grade. You may also be assessed on these topics in September. Getting Help: You are expected to work independently on this. You can ask classmates, Parent/Guardian cell phone number:___________________________________________________ _ friends, or others for suggestions, but you may NOT look at their written work. If someone asks you for help, don’t show them your work. Instead, guide them hints and ask questions that will help them.

I have read this description and agree to do this assignment independently.

5) A mountain climber ascends a mountain to its peak. The peak is 12,740 ft above sea level. The climber then descends 200 ft to meet a fellow climber. Find the climber’s elevation above sea level after meeting the other climber.

6) A camera manufacturer spends $2250 each day for overhead expenses plus $6 per camera for labor and materials. The cameras sell for $16 each. a. How many cameras must the company sell in one day to equal its daily costs?

b. If the manufacturer can increase production by 50 cameras per day, what would their daily profit be?

7) Some people say that there are three Pythagorean Theorems:

a2 + b2 = c2 b2 = c2 – a2 a2 = c2 – b2 Use your skills solving equations to explain why the second and third equation actually come from the first equation.

Transversals In the diagram below, lines m and n are parallel.



1 2 3 4

5 6 7 8

Make a long list of complete sentences describing everything you see in the diagram above.  Use words such as parallel lines, transversal, vertical angles, alternate interior angles, corresponding angles, alternate exterior angles , and interior angles on the same side of the transversal  Use numerical relationships, such as congruent (equal) and supplementary. 1) Example: The angles 1 and 4 are vertical angles. They are congruent (equal). 2)

When you are done, write “NO” next to any sentence that is FALSE if m and n are NOT parallel.

Sequences of Patterns For each example find the sequence of patterns. You need to show and justify your answer for each example. You should work on each example on your own. 1) Bobby has a set of tiles similar to the ones shown below. He says that his tiles have a total of 9 red triangles. Is 9 a reasonable number of triangles?
