Geometry

week of 11/3-11/7

Week at a glance

Please make sure if you missed any of your quizzes, or you have relearned it and want to retest, that you come up at lunch, or after-school on Tuesday and Thursday's to retest.

This week we are finishing Unit C and testing on it. Then we will be working on constructing segments, angles, angle bisectors (MA.912.G.1.2) triangles (MA.912.G.4.1) and basic constructions (MA.912.G.8.6). Plus we will define, identify, and construct angle bisectors and perpendicular bisectors (MA.912.G.4.2). We have done constructions before, so this is not new material to us.

Today we are starting the constructions unit. Our Assessment for Unit D is scheduled for November 19, 2014. Your Vocabulary is due the next day, November 20, 2014. For those that are trying to compare what we are learning with the Geometry book for extra support, we are covering 1-6, 3-6, concept byte 4-2, plus other information outside the text.

Today's lesson is on basic constructions. We will focus on constructing congruent segments, congruent angles, and parallel lines. We will need our compass and a straightedge.

Today we are working on constructing the Angle Bisector. We will need a compass and a straight edge.

There are 20 vocabulary words for Unit D, they are due November 20, 2014! (see below)

Periods 1 and 4: Please check Canvas for your discussion topic on your weebly this week.
Also, all iPad students that have a FaceBook account, need to go like the iPad FB page. Thank you!

Vocabulary for Unit D

You may choose your platform to submit your vocabulary (iPad students can ONLY use Digital!).


~Non-Digital: Flashcards with word on one side then the definition and example on the reverse. You may NOT use a piece of paper and write them all out. You need to create flashcards as they should be used to study.


~Digital: Quizlet; StudyBlue; FlashCardMachine; etc. You can use whichever one you want or find one of your own. You must have the word, mathematical definition (great sites: http://www.mathopenref.com/ and http://www.mathwords.com/a_to_z.htm), and an example (when applicable).


Construct, sketch, compass, straight edge, angle bisector, copying a segment, copying an angle, equilateral triangle, regular figures, Pythagorean Theorem, Pythagorean Triple, angle of depression, angle of elevation, cosine, initial point, magnitude, resultant, sine, tangent, terminal point.


*Please remember this is math class. These need to be definitions and examples relevant to the material being taught*


Example: word: Ray: Incorrect definition: each of the lines in which light (and heat) may seem to stream from the sun or any luminous body, or pass through a small opening. Correct definition: A portion of a line which starts at a point and goes off in a particular direction to infinity.
