Line It Up!

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Line-sanity!

Big Idea:In this student-centered lesson, students work together to construct parallel and perpendicular lines while also writing equations for these lines.

Graphing Parallel and Perpendicular Lines (Day 2 of 2)

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Graphing Linear Functions

Big Idea:Students will connect the main ideas from the previous four lessons to write the equations of parallel and perpendicular lines using given information.

Get Perpendicular with Geoboards!

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:Students reason about Perpendicular Lines with simple concrete examples using Geoboards and extend their reasoning to designing parking lines.

Tools of Geometry Unit Assessment

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Tools of Geometry

Big Idea:Test time! Students take the first unit assessment, aligned to the Common Core standards for this unit.

Equations for Parallel and Perpendicular Lines.

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:For students to write the equation of a line parallel to or perpendicular to a line and passing through a given point using different representations of linear functions.

Why are lines parallel?

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:The emphasis in this lesson is that students not only know the definition of parallel lines, but why lines are parallel.

Graphing Parallel and Perpendicular Lines (Day 1 of 2)

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Graphing Linear Functions

Big Idea:Through graphing students will deduce that the slopes of parallel lines are the same and the slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals.

Coordinate Geometry Unit Review and Test

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Coordinate Geometry

Big Idea:Test time! Students review and then take the unit assessment, hopefully demonstrating their knowledge of coordinate geometry, as well as their ability to organize and justify their work.

More Practice with Coordinate Geometry

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Coordinate Geometry

Big Idea:Students put their coordinate geometry knowledge to work, investigating characteristics of geometric figures and proving hypotheses.

Review Day

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Graphing Linear Functions

Big Idea:Students will complete review questions from the current unit as well as practice their pacing when answering assessment questions.

Parabolas and Review of Line-sanity!

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Line-sanity!

Big Idea:Students will fold away to discover the relationship between a focus, directrix and parabola as well as play Jeopardy to review key topics in Line-sanity unit including alternate interior angles.

Review for MidTerm

Geometry

Â» Unit:

MidTerm Materials

Big Idea:Around the world time! Students will travel around the classroom to review and then present their review questions to each other for review!

Perp Lines are Perfect

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Line-sanity!
