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.) Patterns/Functions Use computers to analyze mathematical phenomena (Students used computers with the aid of Geometer s Sketchpad to study the measure of lengths and angles of different quadrilaterals.) 5

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

7 Equipment and environment An overhead projector and transparencies are used to present this unit. Students are given worksheets as a guide to constructions and investigations of different quadrilaterals using Geometer s Sketchpad software on computers. These constructions and investigations can be done in pairs. Additional worksheets to be done individually are also given to reinforce the lessons. 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

Developmental Activity: Students will work in pairs to investigate the parallelogram.

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.
