**Here is our semester "working" calendar (updated regularly & subject to change)**

**=================================****=================================****=========**

We meet in the UWT1 room (BB107) on Monday and Wednesday.

My email is mbillin@tacoma.k12.wa.us and I am a part-time instructor this year

(on campus Monday & Wednesday & Friday).

What can you do to get more support?

- There's after school tutoring in the Math Lab at 1950 (Mon - Thurs 3:30-4:30)
- Check out videos and practice questions on Khan Academy here: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/geometry-home
- Come to class early (or stay late) to ask questions or to make sure your Geometry Journal is updated and

that you have all the materials you need
