Unit 1 Alternate Assignment

Test or Performance Assessment Replacement

Due Friday, November 8, 2013 at midnight. No Exceptions, No Extensions


This will replace the test or performance assessment grade, whichever is lower

Make a powerpoint. Put it in the DropBox for Unit 1 Alternate Assessment . Questions? Email me!


1. Slide 1 - title of the PowerPoint and your name


2. Remaining slides – information laid out in an organized fashion, clearly readable, labeled.


3. Slides are to contain the following vocabulary definitions :


a. Complementary Angles

b. Linear Pair

c. Supplementary Angles

d. Midpoint

e. Bisector (angle and segment)

f. Segment Addition


4. Add a slide to illustrate and show all work for each of the following (pick your own angle expression, do not use the ones indicated in a. or c. Expressions in x mean for example 5x -2 , 6x, 7x + 1, etc. Each problem should be on a different PowerPoint slide (total 8 slides). Each problem is worth 10 points with partial credit possible.


a. Complementary Angles, create a problem with one angles with measures = 2x + 1 for example and another angle = 3x - 5 for example. Solve for x. Then provide the measure of each angle.


b. Linear Pair. Again, create a problem with two angles and solve for the x variable. Then provide the measure of each angle.


c. Supplementary Angles, create a problem with two angles with measure = 2x + 1 for example and another angle = 3x - 5 for example. Solve for x. Then provide the measure of each angle.


d. Create a bisected segment with two sides = to different expressions with x. Solve for the value of x and then state the length of both sides.


e. Pick a number for the length of a long segment AC. B falls between A and C (not at the midpoint). If AB = an expression in x and BC is an expression in x find the value of x and the length of AB and BC.


f. Using angle ABC bisect angle ABC by creating angle ABD and angle DBC. Create an expression in x for each of the angle measures. Give angle ABC and angle measure. What is x, and what is the measure of the angles?


g. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points. The two points may not have their x’s the same number or the y’s the same number. The x’s should also not match any of the y’s.


h. Using the Midpoint Theorem, find the middle between the two points in g above.
