Mathematics Curriculum Unit Plan # 3

Title:

Triangles

Subject: Geometry

 

Length of Time: 3.5 weeks

Unit Summary: In this unit, students learn to classify triangles by their sides and angles, as well as the Triangle Sum Theorem. Then, they will be comparing the lengths of sides or the measures of angles of a triangle using the Triangle Inequality Theorem. The unit concludes with the ways in which to prove figures are similar and the proportions that result from similar figures.

 

Learning Targets

 

Conceptual Category: Geometry Domain: Congruence

 

Cluster: Prove geometric theorems

 

Standard#:

Standard:

G-CO.9

Points on a perpendicular bisector of a segment are exactly those equidistant from the

segment’s endpoints.

Standard#:

Standard:

G-CO.10

Prove theorems about midsegment, medians, and triangles.

 

Cluster: Prove theorems involving similarity

 

Standard#:

Standard:

G-SRT.4

Prove theorems about triangles.

Theorems include: a line parallel to one side of a triangle

divides the other two proportionally.

 

G-SRT.5

Use congruence and similarity criteria for triangles to solve problems and to prove

relationships in geometric figures.

 

Cluster: Apply geometric concepts in modeling situations.

 

Standard#:

Standard:

G-MG.3

Apply geometric methods to solve design problems (working with typographic grid systems

based on ratios).
