    Welcome Mathematicians to Geometry class!

     

     Geometry Syllabus for the year 2020-2021

     

    Geometry is the second course in a sequence of three required high school courses designed to ensure career and college readiness. The course represents a discrete study of geometry with correlated statistics applications. 

     Course Description

     

    First  Semester : September- December  Units Covered :  0-3

     

    Unit 0(10 days): Establish Spiral review, sense making, growth mindset and Standard Mathematical Practices routines.

                 Grade 8 Standards: 8.G.2,8.G.4,8.G.3 

    Big Idea:

    Describe the effect of transformations on 2D figures in the coordinate plane 

     Unit 1(10 days): Transformations in the Coordinate Plane

    Building on standards from middle school, students will perform transformations in the coordinate plane, describe a sequence of transformations that will map one figure onto another, and describe transformations that will map a figure onto itself. Students will compare transformations that preserve distance and angle to those that do not. 

    Big Ideas: 

    Translate, rotate and reflect regular polygons on a coordinate plane.

    Specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a given figure onto another.

    Big Idea:

    Use informal arguments to angle relationships in triangles. 

    Unit 2(25 days): Similarity, Congruence, and Proofs

    Building on standards from Unit 1 and from middle school, students will use transformations and proportional reasoning to develop a formal understanding of similarity and congruence. Students will identify criteria for similarity and congruence of triangles, develop facility with geometric proofs (variety of formats), and use the concepts of similarity and congruence to prove theorems involving lines, angles, triangles, and other polygons.
