Angle Bisection and Midpoints of Line Segments
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This task provides a construction of the angle bisector of an angle by reducing it to the bisection of an angle to finding the midpoint of a line segment. It is worth observing the symmetry -- for both finding midpoints and bisecting angles, the goal is to cut an object into two equal parts. The conclusion of this task is that they are, in a sense, of exactly equivalent difficulty -- bisecting a segment allows us to bisect and angle (part a) and, conversely, bisecting an angle allows us to bisect a segment (part b). In addition to seeing how these two constructions are related, the task also provides an opportunity for students to use two different triangle congruence criteria: SSS and SAS.

Construction of Perpendicular Bisector
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The construction of the perpendicular bisector of a line segment is one of the most common in plane geometry and it is undertaken here. In addition to giving students a chance to work with straightedge and compass, the problem uses triangle congruence both to show that the constructed line is perpendicular to AB and to show that it bisects AB.

Module 1 embodies critical changes in Geometry as outlined by the Common Core. The heart of the module is the study of transformations and the role transformations play in defining congruence. The topic of transformations is introduced in a primarily experiential manner in Grade 8 and is formalized in Grade 10 with the use of precise language. The need for clear use of language is emphasized through vocabulary, the process of writing steps to perform constructions, and ultimately as part of the proof-writing process.

Geometry: Relationships Within Triangles - Flashcards
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Understanding vocabulary is critical in order to fully understand triangle relationships. In this activity, students will review the vocabulary associated with triangles: circumcenter, incenter, centroid, and orthocenter.

I had my students cut out the flashcards during class. I was very surprised some students took a lot of time cutting out the cards since they cut around the boxes instead of making straight cuts.

I would suggest before students are given the scissors, to model the quickest way to cut out the cards.

Geometry Tools: Angles & Reflections
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students learn about common geometry tools and then learn to use protractors (and Miras, if available) to create and measure angles and reflections. The lesson begins with a recap of the history and modern-day use of protractors, compasses and mirrors. After seeing some class practice problems and completing a set of worksheet-prompted problems, students share their methods and work. Through the lesson, students gain an awareness of the pervasive use of angles, and these tools, for design purposes related to engineering and everyday uses. This lesson prepares students to conduct the associated activity in which they “solve the holes” for hole-in-one multiple-banked angle solutions, make their own one-hole mini-golf courses with their own geometry-based problems and solutions, and then compare their “on paper” solutions to real-world results.

This task can be implemented in a variety of ways. For a class with previous exposure to the incenter or angle bisectors, part (a) could be a quick exercise in geometric constructions,. Alternatively, this could be part of a full introduction to angle bisectors, culminating in a full proof that the three angle bisectors are concurrent, an essentially complete proof of which is found in the solution below.

(Nota: Esta es una traducción de un recurso educativo abierto creado por el Departamento de Educación del Estado de Nueva York (NYSED) como parte del proyecto "EngageNY" en 2013. Aunque el recurso real fue traducido por personas, la siguiente descripción se tradujo del inglés original usando Google Translate para ayudar a los usuarios potenciales a decidir si se adapta a sus necesidades y puede contener errores gramaticales o lingüísticos. La descripción original en inglés también se proporciona a continuación.)

El módulo 1 incorpora cambios críticos en la geometría según lo descrito por el núcleo común. El corazón del módulo es el estudio de las transformaciones y el papel que juegan las transformaciones para definir la congruencia. El tema de las transformaciones se introduce de manera principalmente experiencial en el grado 8 y se formaliza en el grado 10 con el uso de un lenguaje preciso. La necesidad de un uso claro del lenguaje se enfatiza a través del vocabulario, el proceso de escribir pasos para realizar construcciones y, en última instancia, como parte del proceso de escritura de prueba.

This is a high school geometry task that has students physically construct the point equidistant from three non-collinear points and to identify why the construction works.  This construction motivates the notion of a triangle inscribed into a circle and why that particular construction might be useful.

This task is a procedures with connections task, of high cognitive demand.  The procedure is not specified for students but there is largely only one way of folding the paper to be able to identify the intersection point.  The high cognitive demand comes from students having to explain why the construction works and why only two creases are necessary.  This gets at both the meaning and motivation for the construction and the notion of efficiency in having a canonical construction for a circle that inscribes a triangle given three non-collinear points that can form a triangle.

This task could also be used as an assessment task after students learn the construction, although the explanations that may be given by students are more likely to focus on the construction procedures in this particular case.

This task addresses the Pivotal Understanding of equivalence, because it focuses on generating a geometric construction procedure that determines a point equidistant from three non-collinear points.  Equivalence is evident in at least two ways.  First, the distance from the target point to each of the source points is equal.  Second, the construction produces equivalent results (inscribed triangle within a circle given three points) each time.
