3 Overview Day 1: Day 2: Day 3: Day 4: Day 5: The lesson begins with a discussion in regards to the definition of a quadrilateral and the terms referring to the parts of the quadrilateral. Students work in pairs to construct a parallelogram and discover properties of a parallelogram. This is done on a computer using Geometer s Sketchpad software. Students will summarize these properties and a worksheet is given to reinforce the lesson. The lesson begins with a review of the properties of a parallelogram. Students think of ways to prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Students are given two worksheets to complete on proving a quadrilateral is a parallelogram. The teacher guides students through these proofs and theorems. Students discuss the definitions of a rectangle, a rhombus, and a square. Then students work in pairs to construct these quadrilaterals and discover their properties with the aid of Geometer s Sketchpad software on a computer. The class as a group summarize these properties. Another worksheet is given to reinforce this lesson. Students discuss the definitions of a trapezoid and an isosceles trapezoid. Students work in pairs to construct these quadrilaterals and discover their properties with the aid of Geometer s Sketchpad software on a computer. Then the class as a group summarize these properties. Another worksheet is given to reinforce the lesson. To reinforce this unit, students are guided through a group activity in which they use a rope to create quadrilaterals. Then students complete a review worksheet on the properties of these quadrilaterals. 3

5 Performance Standards NYS Core Curriculum Performance Indicators Operation Using computers to analyze mathematical phenomena (My lessons require computers and Geometer s Sketchpad software to discover properties of some quadrilaterals.) Modeling/Multiple Representation Use learning technologies to make and verify geometric conjectures Justify the procedures for basic geometric constructions (My lessons require computers and Geometer s Sketchpad software to construct some quadrilaterals and to make conjectures regarding their properties.) Illustrate spatial relationships using perspective (The group activity that I chose as a review and reinforcement of the quadrilaterals and their properties involved spatial relationships as students formed different quadrilaterals using themselves as vertices and a rope to outline it.) Measurement Use geometric relationships in relevant measurement problems involving geometric concepts (Students used Geometer s Sketchpad software and measured lengths and angles. They related these measurements to their knowledge of angle congruences, such as alternate interior angles and corresponding angles.) Mathematical Reasoning Use geometric relationships in relevant measurement problems involving geometric concepts (Investigating angle measurements required students to use their knowledge of angle relationships and congruences.)

6 Performance Standards NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics Standard 1: Mathematics as Problem Solving (Students worked on computers using Geometer s Sketchpad software to discover some properties of different quadrilaterals through the measurements of segments and angles.) Standard 2: Mathematics as Communication (Students worked in pairs to discover properties of some quadrilaterals. In order to do so, they needed to communicate with each other. Students also needed to communicate as a group during the review activity on day 5. Also, students needed to communicate during the discussions leading to and summarizing the properties of these quadrilaterals.) Standard 3: Mathematics as Reasoning (Students made conjectures about some of the properties of the quadrilaterals an tested them using Geometer s Sketchpad by dragging the vertices to see if these properties still held.) 6

On the final day, a group activity is done with the students to review properties of different quadrilaterals that were presented in this unit. A rope is used (as a manipulative) to do this activity. (I adapted this activity to my unit on quadrilaterals from a lesson a fellow teacher used in her class when presenting right triangles.) 7

THE GENERAL QUADRILATERAL A quadrilateral, ABCD, is a polygon with four sides. A vertex is an endpoint where two sides meet. (A, B, C, or D) Consecutive vertices are vertices that are endpoints of the same side. (A and B, B and C, C and D, or D and A) Consecutive sides or Adjacent sides are those sides that have a common endpoint. (segments AB and BC, segments BC and CD, segments CD and DA, segments DA and AB) Opposite sides of a quadrilateral are sides that do not have a common endpoint. (segments BC and DA, segments ) Consecutive angles are angles whose vertices are consecutive. (angles DAB and ABC, angles ABC and BCD, angles BCD and CDA, angles CDA and DAB) Opposite angles are angles whose vertices are not consecutive. (angles DAB and BCD, angles) A diagonal is a line segment that joins two vertices that are not consecutive. (segment AC and segment BD) 9

Then hand the students a rope to hold to outline the parallelogram they have made. Ask the students, "Why is this a parallelogram?" and have them discuss the properties of a parallelogram. Then choosing four new volunteers, have them go to the front of the room and form a rectangle by positioning themselves as the vertices.

32 Quadrilaterals Assessments Students will be evaluated by their performance on the following test, the worksheets, and the homework assignments. These assessments include performance indicators from the NYS performance standards. One is measurement, that is, using geometric relationships in relevant measurement problems involving geometric concepts. Some of the problems on both the test and the worksheets involve finding the missing measurements. Also, mathematical reasoning, another performance standard, is met. Students need to use their previous knowledge of mathematical concepts and apply this knowledge when solving mathematical problems. And the worksheets address these NYS performance standards: Operation, Modeling/Multiple Representation, and Patterns/Functions because they require students to use computers or technology. 32
33 Test on Quadrilaterals 1. (6 points) In a parallelogram ABCD, if the measurement of angle B exceeds the measurement of angle A by 50, find the degree measure of angle B. 2.

34 Quadrilaterals Answers to Test on Quadrilaterals 1. (6 points) In a parallelogram ABCD, if the measurement of angle B exceeds the measurement of angle A by 50, find the measure of angle B. Solution: Let x = the measure of angle A and let x + 50 = the measure of angle B Since two consecutive angles of a parallelogram are supplementary, the measure of angle A plus the measure of angle B equals 180. That is, x + x + 50 = 180 so Since x = 65, x + 50 = 115 and the measure of angle B is (10 points) Given: ABCD is a parallelogram. E is the midpoint of AB. F is the midpoint of DC. Prove: EBFD is a parallelogram. Solution: Statements Reasons 1. ABCD is a parallelogram. 1. Given 2. Segments AB and DC are congruent. 2. Opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent. 3. E is the midpoint of AB. 3. Given. 4. F is the midpoint of DC. 4. Given. 5. Segments EB and DF are congruent. 5. Halves of congruent segments are congruent. 6. Segments EB and DF are parallel. 6. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral two pairs of opposite sides parallel. 7. EBFD is a parallelogram. 7. If one pair of congruent sides of a quadrilateral are both congruent and parallel, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. 3. In rectangle ABCD, CB = 6, AB = 8, and AC = 10. Find the missing lengths. (14 points) Solution: AD = 6, CD = 8, EC = 5, AE = 5, DE = 5, EB = 5, and DB = (70 points) Under the letters "a" through "g" in the following table, answer "yes" or "no" to the following questions for each of the given quadrilaterals. a. Are opposite sides congruent and parallel? b. Are opposite angles congruent? c. Are the diagonals always congruent? d. Do the diagonals bisect each other? e. Are the diagonals always perpendicular to each other? f. Are all angles congruent? g. Are any two consecutive sides always congruent? 34
