Tremendous Triangles Projects

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Tremendous Triangles

Big Idea:It's students' time to shine! Students develop their own problem and then shoot a video to explain how to prove their triangles congruent.

Fall Interim Assessment

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Fall Interim Assessment: Geometry Intro, Constructions and Rigid Motion

Big Idea:This is a comprehensive assessment of Units 1, 2 and 3.

Constructing Regular Polygons Inscribed in Circles using Geometer's Sketchpad

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Geometric Constructions

Big Idea:Students will use rotation to construct regular polygons inscribed in circles.

Angles of a Triangle

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Parallel Lines

Big Idea:Students learn about the different types of triangles, the relationships between the interior and exterior angles of a triangle, and apply their knowledge to numerical problems and constructions.

Geometric Constructions Assessment Error Analysis

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Geometric Constructions

Big Idea:Using a generic student's responses to questions on the End of Unit Assessment, students will identify and explain errors and make corrections.

Interior and Exterior Angle Sum of Polygons

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Discovering and Proving Polygon Properties

Big Idea:Through investigating a variety of polygons with different numbers of sides, students will discover the interior and exterior angle sum for any polygon.

Triangle Sum Theorem and Special Triangles

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Discovering and Proving Triangle Properties

Big Idea:By investigating the angles of four different types of triangles, students conjecture about the interior angle sum of triangles and ultimately prove the triangle sum theorem.

Constructing Inscribed Regular Triangles, Quadrilaterals and Hexagons

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Geometric Constructions

Big Idea:Students will use concepts from previous lessons to construct equilateral triangles, squares and regular hexagons inscribed in a circle.
