1 Review the Geometry sample yearlong scope and sequence associated with this unit plan. Mathematics Possible time frame: Unit 1: Introduction to Geometric Concepts, Construction, and Proof 14 days This unit starts with familiar geometric concepts: angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment. However, the students understanding of these topics will deepen as students move from informal definitions used in previous math courses to precise definitions of all concepts. As students reengage with geometry they will also begin modeling objects using two and threedimensional geometric figures to solve simple problems. Students will make formal geometric constructions (copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line). Students will begin to explore the idea of a formal proof as they prove theorems about lines and angles (theorems: vertical angles are congruent; when a transversal crosses parallel lines, alternate interior angles are congruent and corresponding angles are congruent; points on a perpendicular bisector of a line segment are exactly those equidistant from the segment s endpoints). Most of these are informally developed in 7 th or 8 th grade and formally proven in Geometry. Major Cluster Standards Standards Clarification Prove geometric theorems HSGCO.C.9 Prove theorems about lines and angles. Theorems include: vertical angles are congruent; when a transversal crosses parallel lines, alternate interior angles are congruent and corresponding angles are congruent; points on a perpendicular bisector of a line segment are exactly those equidistant from the segment s endpoints. Apply geometric concepts in modeling situations HSGMG.A.1 Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder). Supporting Cluster Standards Experiment with transformations in the plane HSGCO.A.1 Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc. Make geometric constructions HSGCO.D.12 Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.). Copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line. Applying Mathematical Practices to CCSS MP.3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. MP.6 Attend to precision. MP.7 Look for and make use of structure. Modeling Standard HSGMG.A.1 Students will continue to use geometric figures to model realword objects and solve problems with the most emphasis in Units 7, 8, 9, and 11. Standards Clarification HSGCO.A.1 Students will continue to use the precise definitions of geometric figures throughout the year, but most notably in Unit 10. Students build proficiency with MP.3 and MP.7 as they build a mathematical system with structured statements, including postulates and proven theorems. Students should be exposed to a variety of proof styles, including flowchart proofs, twocolumn proofs, and paragraph proofs, as they begin to build viable logical arguments. Again, the use of precise language, MP.6, is critical to building a logical argument. 1
2 What will students know and be able to do by the end of this unit? Students will demonstrate an understanding of the unit focus and meet the expectations of the Common Core State Standards on the unit assessments. Standards The major cluster standards for this unit include: HSGCO.C.9 Prove theorems about lines and angles. HSGMG.A.1 Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder). Unit Assessment Students will demonstrate mastery of the content through assessment items and tasks requiring: Conceptual Understanding Procedural Skill and Fluency Application Math Practices Objectives and Formative Tasks Objectives and tasks aligned to the CCSS prepare students to meet the expectations of the unit assessments. Concepts and Skills Each objective is broken down into the key concepts and skills students should learn in order to master objectives. 2
3 Sample EndofUnit Assessment Items: 1) In the diagram below, XY is a line, A is a point on the line, and B is a point not on the line. Construct a line parallel to XY that passes through B. Explain how you know the line you constructed is parallel to XY. B X A Y 2) Suppose that four lines, l 1, l 2, m 1, and m 2 lie in a given plane such that l 1 l 2, m 1 m 1, and l 1 is neither parallel nor perpendicular to m 1. a. Sketch (freehand) a diagram of l 1, l 2, m 1, and m 2 to illustrate the given conditions. b. In any diagram that illustrates the given conditions, how many nonoverlapping angles are formed?

Justify your answer. Item from 3) In the figure below, lines p and q are parallel. Lines l and m are also parallel. Prove that Angle A is congruent to Angle X. m D A C B U R T S H E G F Z V X W 3

In your explanation, be sure to state which tools you used and describe how you used those tools. b. Place a point R on the perpendicular bisector in the drawing in part a.

Include a diagram with your proof. 6) Six objects are listed below. Circle all of the objects that could be modeled using line segments. a. A piece of paper b. A pencil c. A basketball d. A tabletop e. A piece of spaghetti f. A soda can 4
5 Sample End of Unit Assessment Task: Constructions and Proof 1) Using the following diagram, draw a transversal. Use the transversal and a protractor to explain why these lines are parallel. 2) Copy the angle below. Then, bisect the copied angle. 3) Divide AB into 4 segments of equal length. Adapted from: A B 5
6 Endofunit Assessment Sample Item Responses: Teacher Note: All drawings included in these responses may not be to scale when printed as they may change due use of different computers, printers, etc. 1) HSGCO.A.1, HSGCO.C.9, HSGCO.D.12 2) HSGCO.A.1 a. The line constructed through point B is parallel to line XY because I used constructions to copy Angle BAY to the corresponding angle position with B as the vertex. Since the two angles are congruent, the lines are parallel. b. There are 16 distinct angles with two different angle measures because alternate interior/exterior angles are congruent and corresponding angles are congruent. 6
7 3) HSGCO.C.9 Lines p and q are transversals for lines l and m (and vice versa). Additionally, it is given that p q and l m. By definition of corresponding angles, Angle A and Angle E are considered corresponding angles. The Corresponding Angles Postulate says that corresponding angles are congruent, so Angle A Angle E. Another pair of corresponding angles is Angle E and Angle V. By the transitive property of congruence, if Angle A Angle E and Angle E Angle V, then Angle A Angle V. Angle V and Angle X are considered vertical angles, by definition of vertical angles. By the Vertical Angles Theorem, we know that Angle V Angle X. Again, using the transitive property of congruence, if Angle A Angle V and Angle V Angle X, then Angle A Angle X. 4) HSGCO.C.9, HSGCO.D.12 a. Using a ruler (or straightedge), draw a line segment and label the endpoints P and Q. To construct the perpendicular bisector of PQ, place the point of a compass on one of the endpoints of the line segment and set the width of the compass to slightly more than half the length of the segment (the actual width does not matter). Without changing the width of the compass, draw an arc above and below the line segment. Again, without changing the width of the compass, place the point of the compass on the opposite endpoint of the line segment and draw an arc above and below the line segment so the two new arcs intersect the first two arcs. Using a straightedge (ruler), draw a line connecting the points where the arcs intersect. Teacher Note: The description above with a diagram for each step can be viewed by visiting 7
8 b. Label the points where the set of arcs above PQ intersect as A, the point where the set of arcs below PQ intersect as B. R can be placed anywhere on the perpendicular bisector, AB. There are two cases: 1) R is not on ; PQ 2) R is on PQ. Prove that if R is placed anywhere on AB, R is equidistant from P and Q. Case 1: R is not on. PQ Because AB is a perpendicular bisector of PQ, Angle PJR and Angle QJR are both right angles which each measure 90 degrees, by definition of perpendicular. Therefore, Angle PJR is congruent to Angle QJR since congruent angles have equal measure. Also, by definition of perpendicular bisector, PJ is congruent to. QJ Connect R with P with one segment and connect R with Q with one segment. This will create two triangles. Triangle PJR and Triangle QJR are both right triangles as they each include one right angle. By the Pythagorean Theorem, we know that PJ 2 + JR 2 = PR 2 and QJ 2 + JR 2 = QR 2. By definition of perpendicular bisector, we know that PJ = QJ so we can rewrite QJ 2 + JR 2 = QR 2 as PJ 2 + JR 2 = QR 2. Solving PJ 2 + JR 2 = PR 2 and PJ 2 + JR 2 = QR 2 for PR and QR respectively, we have PR = PJ 2 + JR 2 and QR = PJ 2 + JR 2. By the transitive property of equality, PR = QR. If a point is equidistant from two other points, then the point is the same distance away from both points. The measure of a segment represents the distance one endpoint is from the other; therefore, if PR = QR, then R is the same distance from P and Q, and it is equidistant from P and Q. 8
9 Case 2: R is on. PQ If R is on the perpendicular bisector and on PQ, then R must be located at the midpoint of PQ because the perpendicular bisector of a segment intersects the segment at its midpoint. By definition, the midpoint of a line segment divides the segment into two equal parts. Therefore, R is equidistant from P and Q. Teacher Note: Students will not have learned the postulates for triangle congruence; therefore, they cannot use that information in a proof. This proof draws upon their knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem from Grade 8 and their ability to manipulate equations. This is a formal proof. Teacher discretion may allow for a less formal proof with solid logical reasoning. In a less formal proof, students may not account for both cases and there may be missing steps from the proof above. This would provide an opportunity for rich discussion following the assessment to understand better the reasoning needed to write a thorough proof. 9
10 5) HSGCO.C.9 Given: Angle 1 and angle 2 are vertical angles. Prove: Angle 1 Angle 2 Statements Reasons 1. Angle 1 and angle 2 are vertical angles. 1. Given Angle Addition Postulate Substitution property of equality Reflexive property of equality Subtraction property of equality Definition of congruence Teacher Note: This is a sample proof. Some students will use different reasons so all should be checked for accuracy and reasoning. 6) HSGMG.A.1 Solution: Answer choices: b. A pencil e. A piece of spaghetti 10
11 Sample End of Unit Assessment Task Responses: Constructions and Proof 1) HSGCO.C.9 After drawing in the transversal, I measured the angles and found the measures of the angles shown. Since the alternate interior angles have the same measure, they are congruent. If two lines are cut by a transversal such that the alternate interior angles are congruent hen the lines are parallel. Thus, the lines above are parallel. 2) HSGCO.D.12 Teacher Note: For the steps to copy an angle visit: For the steps to bisect an angle visit: 11

16 Application Task: Teacher Note: The directions below indicate students should use a poster board; however, this task can be completed on a piece of paper as well. The size of the triangle may need to be adjusted if the task is changed to be submitted on a sheet of paper. Directions for Map Construction: Note: All streets (lines) constructed should be extended to run off the poster board. 1. Begin by sketching a compass to indicate the directions north, south, east, and west. Draw this in the upper left hand corner of the poster board. 2. Construct an equilateral triangle in the center of your poster board. The sides of the triangle should each measure 4 inches. Use a straightedge to extend the lines including the sides of each triangle so the lines run off the poster board. Label the vertices A, B, and C. This will give you three streets:, AB BC, and CA. 3.

19 Answer the following questions based on the map you created. Use complete sentences in your explanations and justifications. For any proofs, you may choose the type of proof you create. Be sure to include logical reasoning to avoid leaving relevant information out of the proof. 1. State the measures of the following angles. Explain how you know the measures of the angles without using a protractor. Verify the angle measures. a. measure of Angle BAC The measure of Angle BAC is 60. Angle BAC is an angle in the equilateral triangle. All angles in an equilateral triangle are 60 degrees. b. measure of Angle DAB The measure of Angle DAB is also 60. Angle DAN is a copy of Angle ACB so it has the same measure of Angle ACB which is 60. Angle DAN, Angle CAB, and Angle DAB are adjacent and their noncommon rays form a line which means all the sum of the measures of the angles is 180. Since the sum of Angle CAB and Angle DAN is 120, the measure of Angle DAB is also 60. c. measure of Angle ABF The measure of Angle ABF is 120. Angle ABF and Angle ABC are adjacent and their noncommon rays form a line, so the sum of the measures of the two angles is180. Angle ABC is an angle in the equilateral triangle therefor its measure is = 120. d. measure of Angle BGF The measure of Angle BGF is 30. Angle FBG is 60 degrees because Angle ABC and Angle FBG are vertical angles and vertical angles are congruent which means they have the same measure. Angle BFG is 90 degrees because street EF is perpendicular to street BC at point F which means the angles formed at the intersection (labeled point F) are right angles. Right angles are 90 degree angles. Together, Angle FBG, Angle BFG, and Angle BGF are three angles in right triangle BFG. The sum of the measures of the three angles of a triangle is ( ) = What does it mean for two lines to be parallel? Prove that streets AD and BC are parallel. If two lines are parallel, they lie in the same plane and they do not intersect. I constructed AD by copying Angle ACB to construct Angle NAD. Copying an angle creates two congruent angles so Angle ACB is congruent to Angle NAD. Street AC is a transversal of streets AD and BC which makes Angle ACB and Angle NAD corresponding angles by the definition of corresponding angles. If two lines are cut by a transversal so that two corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. Therefore streets AD and BC are parallel. 3. Are there any other pairs of streets that are parallel? Explain your reasoning using the properties of angles and parallel lines. Yes, streets EF and HJ are parallel. Street EF was constructed to be perpendicular to street AD. All four angles formed at the intersection labeled E are right angles, and all right angles are congruent. Because EF is a transversal intersecting streets AD and BC,.and they are parallel, street EF must be perpendicular to street BC. Street HJ was constructed to be perpendicular to street BC. By the same reasoning used earlier, street HJ must be perpendicular to street AD. If two lines are perpendicular to the same line then the lines are parallel. Therefore streets EF and HJ are parallel. 19
20 4. Imagine the section of the city depicted by your map has a subway that runs entirely underground and directly beneath street. EF a. Is the subway parallel to? EF Explain. Yes the subway is parallel to. EF Even though the subway is not on the street level, a plane can be formed between the street and the subway. According to the map, both street EF and the subway would be running north and south. Since they will never intersect, the street and the subway are parallel. b. Is the subway parallel to another street? Explain. Yes the subway is also parallel to HJ. Even though the subway is not on the street level, a plane can be formed between the street and the subway. According to the map, both street HJ and the subway would be running north and south. Since they will never intersect, the street and the subway are parallel. c. Since the subway runs underneath the streets on this map, it will never intersect with any of the streets shown on the map. Does this mean the subway is parallel to some or all of these streets? Explain. The subway is only parallel to those streets which run north and south. Streets that run any other direction (on the map they would intersect streets EF and HJ ) would not be in any same plane as the subway. Two lines that do not intersect and are not in the same plane are considered skew lines, not parallel. Therefore, the subway would be considered skew to all streets that do not run north and south. 20
