Reflection: Unit Planning Special Quadrilateral Clean Up - Section 2: Notes: Circles Vocabulary


As I think back on the sequencing of this unit, I really am convinced that this is a great time in the unit to have students write their own definitions as it reinforces the components of good definitions (classification and differentiation) while giving students a chance to review some foundational terms (line versus line segment, for example) in a new-ish context.

Objective: Students will be able to define special quadrilaterals, triangles, and circles terms.

Big Idea: By looking at examples and non-examples of parts of circles, students will write their own definitions.
