**Content Structure**

Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring gives a topic by topic review of the Geometry Regents Exam. We review major topics like: *Congruence, Similarity, Right Triangles, Trigonometry, Circles, Expressing Geometric Properties With Equations, Geometric Measurement & Dimensions, and Modeling with Geometry.*

After each section teachers will hand out practice questions, review answers, answer any questions and continue to the next topic. With the Geometry Regents Exam prep course things are less formal because the teachers are focused mostly on working through problems and Q&A to help all students understand each concept.

**Course Structure**

Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring’s Geometry Regents Prep Course runs from 9am-4pm, with a few 5-10 minute breaks, and a 45-minute lunch break. Classes are small and capped at a max of 18 students.

Our classes are taught close to exam dates so that students will retain more information and are designed for review of previously learned concepts with a focus on test-taking strategies and practice problems – we call these “mini-lessons”.

These mini-lessons are followed by questions and further review. Teachers walk around while students are working on the practice problems of each individual concept – which is another opportune time for students to ask individual questions about questions they are working on. We also welcome additional questions during breaks.

Our teachers are there to help you get answers and understand the material, not to “get through” the course.

## What our parents and Children say about us

**Get To Know The Geometry Regents Exam**

- The Geometry (Common Core) Regents exam is a 3-hour long exam that consists of four parts with a total of 35 questions.
**Part I**consists of 24 multiple-choice questions worth 2 points each (48 total points).**Part II**consists of 7 constructed-response questions worth 2 points each (14 points).**Part III**consists of 3 constructed-response questions worth 4 points each (12 points).**Part IV**consists of 1 constructed-response questions worth 6 points (6 points). Part IV question will require students to develop multistep, extended logical arguments and proofs involving major content.

- All questions in each of the four parts of the test must be answered. Your answers to the 24 multiple-choice questions in Part 1 are scored as either correct or incorrect. Solutions to questions in Part II, III, and IV that are not completed correctly may receive partial credit according to a special scoring provided by the New York State Department of Education. The maximum total raw score for the Geometry (Common Core) Regents exam is 86 points. After the raw score for the four parts of the test are added together, a conversion table provided by the New York State Education department is used to convert the raw score to a final test score that falls within the usual 0 to 100 scale.
- You are not allowed to bring your own scrap paper or graph paper into the exam. The exam booklet contains one page of scrap paper and one page of graph paper. These are perforated and can be removed from the booklet to make working with them easier. Any work you put on these sheets is not graded. If you want a grader to consider any work there, you must copy it into the appropriate space in the booklet.
- The Geometry (Common Core) Regents Examination test booklet will include a reference sheet containing the formulas. This formula sheet, however, does not necessarily include all of the formulas that you are expected to know.
- Graphing calculators are required for the Geometry Common Core exam, and schools must provide one to any students who don’t have their own. You may bring your own calculator if you own one, and many students feel more comfortable using their own familiar calculator. Be aware, though, that test administrators may clear the memory and any stored programs you might have saved on your calculator before the exam begins.
- A good working knowledge of the graphing calculator will let you apply more than one method to solving a problem. Some calculator techniques worth knowing are:
- Using the graph and intersect feature to solve linear and quadratic equations
- Using tables to find patterns or to quickly apply trial and error to solve a problem
- Finding the square root and cube root of a number
- Using the trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions

- You will also be provided with a compass and straightedge if you do not have your own. Bringing your own compass is highly recommended, since the compasses provided by your school are of unknown quality. Also, it will be less stressful on test day to work with a compass that you are familiar with.
- You are responsible for bringing your own pen and pencil to the exam. All work must be done in blue or black pen, with the exception of graphs and diagrams which may be done in pencil.

### Tips on How “Survive”

### The Geometry Regents Exam

**Review Previous Tests**- By examining the kind of questions asked on older tests, you'll learn some important information that includes the targeted subject matter as well as level of item difficulty. You can find a number of old Regents Exams along with their answer keys by visiting the official Regents website (http://www.nysedregents.org/).

**Answer a lot of Practice Questions**- After looking over questions that were written for past Regents Exams, see how well you do on similar items by answering some chemistry practice questions. Your performance on these questions will indicate which topics you need to focus on the most during your prep.

**Use The Calculator**- Learn how to use the calculator and when not to use the calculator. There’s only so much it can do for you – and you must be ready for all concepts that require this useful tool.

**Study, Study, Study!**- Do not overwhelm yourself with trying to learn or go over everything all at once. Take it slow and study a little bit at a time. Always work from the beginning, for example, go over the things that you learned at the beginning of the course or year because those are the things that are not as fresh in your memory.

**Equations – REMEMBER ALL OF THEM!**- The test will have a table of useful equations to help you, but not all are present. Don’t bet on any of them being there, just remember them all.

**Ask for help!**- If there are concepts you do not understand, do not hesitate to ask for help. Consult your teacher during the course, write us an e-mail afterwards, give us a call – we are YOUR resource for further hel
