Welcome to Geometry!

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:What are we gonna learn this year? A team brain-storming activity helps students grasp the scope of geometry and gets them started sharing their ideas on the very first day.

Models & Constructions Unit Quiz

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:Students show what they have learned: from vocabulary and basic skills to an application in an unfamiliar context.

Reviewing Geometric Models

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:We have applied the properties of these objects in modeling situations. Now, what have we learned by "doing geometry"?

Preview and Goal-Setting

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:Students learn what will be expected of them in this course as they are encouraged to persevere in making sense of a pair of novel problems.

Finding Your Center

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:If we know two points where a Wi-Fi signal has the same strength, can we find the hotspot? Not yet, but we can model the possible locations.

Submarine Smart Phone

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:Using lines to represent information about the position of an object. I know where your cell phone fell into the water!

Diagonal Daze

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Dimension and Structure

Big Idea:Students analyze the structure of polygons and learn how this structure can be used to represent a real-world phenomenon. Will Facebook make our brains grow larger?

Cell Phone 9-1-1

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Models and Constructions

Big Idea:Using circles to represent information about the position of an object. I know where your cell phone is located!

Reviewing Intersections

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Dimension and Structure

Big Idea:Students review homework and complete their learning portfolios for the unit. How much have we learned?

Reviewing Structure

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Dimension and Structure

Big Idea:Students review homework and assess their progress. How much have we learned?

Dig In! Day 1

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Tools of Geometry

Big Idea:Want to find out how many unique shapes can be created using four congruent isosceles right triangles? Dig in!

Pyramids and Spheres Exploration

Geometry

Â» Unit:

3-D Shapes and Volume

Big Idea:Students will use play dough to discover the volume formulas for pyramids and spheres.

Circles Assessment

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Circles

Big Idea:Students will complete a problem set of challenging application and proof based circle problems.

Geometric Modeling: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Day 1

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Geometric Modeling

Big Idea:Students solve problems involving measurement based on information from the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Simplifying Square Roots

Geometry

Â» Unit:

Scaling Up- Dilations, Similarity and Proportional Relationships

Big Idea:Students use a geometric model to understand the properties of square roots. Look, Ma! No calculator!
