6 Day 1 Objective Students will identify angles formed by parallel lines and transversals. Opening activity. Students will be asked to give examples of where they see parallel lines in their everyday lives. Some possible answers: telephone poles, railroad tracks, and street maps. Classroom Activity. Students will be given a worksheet. The worksheet provided requires students to create a set of parallel lines and a transversal on Geometer s Sketchpad. Students may require step by step directions to create this sketch. Please refer to Appendix A for directions on GSP. The activity allows the student to use the technology to make connections about the angles formed in this diagram. The teacher should walk around the room and assist any students that are having difficulty with the technology or assignment. Closing Activity Allow 510 minutes at the end of class for a full class discussion. Students should share their discoveries with the class. A student might say all the obtuse angles in their diagram were equal. To make this connection stronger the teacher might ask some students to share their measurements for the obtuse angles. Then ask the students if all their obtuse angles were also equal. Since all the measurements are different and each student had the same conclusion the class should get a better understanding that this equivalency is not a fluke. The teacher should summarize the main idea of this activity by restating Every angle in this diagram has a relationship, either the angles are equal to each other or they add up to be 180 degrees. Homework pg All 6

Write out your own definition of what it means to be parallel. Parallel means that the lines will never cross, and they will always be the same distance apart. 2. What do you notice about all the obtuse angles? They are all equal to each other 3. What do you notice about all of the acute angle? 9
10 They are all equal to each other 4. What is the sum of any obtuse angle and any acute angle on this diagram? The sum equals The interior angles are on the inside of the diagram they are: (answers vary depending on how student labels their diagram) Angle bde, Angle deg, Angle ced, and Angle edh. The exterior angles are on the outside of the diagram they are: Angle feg, Angle fec, Angle adh, and Angle bda. Alternate angles are non adjacent angles and are on opposite sides of the transversal. For example, in Diagram 1 Angle hfc and Angle fcd are examples of alternate interior angles. Write a statement that shows a relationship between alternate interior angles and alternate exterior angles. Alternate interior angles are equal to each other. Alternate Exterior angles are also equal to each other. 6. Write a statement about all the angles in this diagram. Either 2 angles are equal to each other or they add up to be 180 degrees. 10
11 Day 2 Triangle Classification Objectives: Using Geoboards and straws students will be able to classify triangles according to their sides. Opening activity: Have students define the following terms isosceles triangles, scalene triangles, equilateral triangles, acute and obtuse angles. Have students share their responses with their classmates. Classroom Activity Students will be paired off and be given geoboards and rubber bands. Together with their partners students are asked to complete the geoboard worksheet. The time allowed will be 10 minutes. After this time is completed, the will discuss their findings. Important part of the discussion includes: What is the relationship between the smallest angle and the smallest side? How many obtuse angles can one triangle have? Students will be given 12 straws cut into 3in, 5 in, 8 in and 12 pieces. Students are to try and create triangles using the 4 different straws recording their results. Teacher should walk around the room making sure the results are being recorded. Students will be asked if they can find connection with the lengths of sides and triangles. (i.e. Why can t we make a triangle with 3, 5, 8 and we can make a triangle with 8, 12, and 3.) With some prompting students should recognize that the sum of any 2 sides of a triangle is greater than the third side. Allow minutes for this activity. Closing Students will do an exit pass explaining one new thing they learned about triangles and one thing they had already knew. Homework PG Try these 35 Exercise 14;

Students will be given out Quadrilateral Classification worksheets. Geoboards and dot paper. Students may work with their partners to complete the work. Go around the room and ask prompting questions about the figures. Such as, What do you notice the difference is between a rhombus and a square? What do they have in common? Once the students have completed the worksheets, review the answers on the overhead. Ask the students to go back through the worksheets and find out what each of the five special case quadrilaterals have in common and what are there differences. Students should be thinking about what is the difference between a square and a rhombus. Go around the room and ask prompting questions. Some questions to pose: Can a square also be a rectangle? Can a rectangle also be described as a parallelogram? Why or why not? Summarize and review the main point of the activity on the overhead.

It creates 2 triangles. Using your knowledge of triangle, how many degrees are in any 4 sided figures? 360 degrees. Use the measurement tool to prove your answer. m! c m! c m! a m! a m! a 27
28 Using Geometers sketchpad complete the chart below Name of Polygon Number of sides Number of Triangles Degrees Triangle Quadrilateral Pentagon Hexagon Heptagon Octagon Nonagon Decagon Do you notice a pattern between the number of triangles and the number of sides? Yes. The number of triangles is always 2 less than the number of sides How many degrees are in a polygon with 20 sides? There would be 18 triangles so 18*180=3240 degrees. 28
29 Day 5 Triangle Congruency Objective: students will be able to identify congruent triangles. Opening Activity Students will be asked to define congruent. Classroom Activity Students will log onto the internet and NLVM website. Students will be asked to go to Geometry, grades 68 and click on congruent triangles. Using NLVM website and the worksheet students will work with SSS, SAS and ASA Postulates to gain a better understanding of why they prove triangle congruencies. Allow minutes for this activity. Students should discuss with the class the answers to the worksheet. The teacher will then put up examples from the book, pg 104 Try these 14 and ask the students to apply their knowledge to answer which triangles are congruent and why. Homework pg ALL 29
30 Triangle Congruency In SSS, each blue segment was equal to each red segment. What happened when you formed the blue and red triangle? Was it possible to have the red triangle not congruent to the blue triangle? Why or Why Not? In SAS each blue segment was equal to the red segments and the blue angle was equal to the red angle. After fitting both the red segments onto the red angle, why do you think it automatically formed a triangle? How does this show that if 2 triangles have 2 sides and the include angle equal they are congruent to each other? ASA means that if two triangles have 2 equal angles and the included side is also equal then the triangles must be congruent. How were you able to show this using the technology? 30
31 Triangle Congruency In SSS, each blue segment was equal to each red segment. What happened when you formed the blue and red triangle? Was it possible to have the red triangle not congruent to the blue triangle? Why or Why Not? Both of the triangles were equal. No it is not possible. All three segments would only fit together one way to form a triangle. In SAS each blue segment was equal to the red segments and the blue angle was equal to the red angle. After fitting both the red segments onto the red angle, why do you think it automatically formed a triangle? Because the there is only one line segment that would connect the two endpoints of the 2 segments How does this show that if 2 triangles have 2 sides and the include angle equal they are congruent to each other? There is only one triangle that can be formed when you have 2 sides and the included angle already given. Therefore if another triangle has the same 2 sides and included angle that new triangle must be congruent to the first. ASA means that if two triangles have 2 equal angles and the included side is also equal then the triangles must be congruent. How were you able to show this using the technology? When building the triangle the line segment had to fit onto the angle ray of each of the 2 angles given. The rays not used are going opposite directions and they will meet at one point only. Meaning the lengths of the other 2 sides is determined by this one point. Therefore if 2 triangles have 2 equal angles and the included side is also equal the triangles must be congruent. 31
32 Appendix A GUIDE TO GSP ACTIVITIES Directions for Geometer s Sketchpad Remember when working with Sketchpad, often an error occurs when incorrect information is highlighted. Parallel Lines Using the line tool construct a line. Use the pointer tool to highlight the line. Go up to Transform, Choose Translate. Parallel Lines with a Transversal Follow the procedure for parallel lines above. Using the point tool place a point on each of the lines. Highlight the points. Go up to Construct, choose line. Naming the Angles: an angle is made up of 3 points. Using the case above, additional points must be added to the line in order for an angle to be named. Using the point tool place points on the lines. Then go up to display, choose label points. This will automatically label all points on the lines. 32
