Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Zero-Energy Home Design

Challenge young engineers to design a one-bedroom scale house that would collect and maintain as much heat as possible. Special constraints must be adhered to, but creativity is also allowed. Diagrams and background information are...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Proof of the Pythagorean Theorem Using Transformations

Middle and high schoolers construct a triangle using Cabri Jr. They construct squares on each of the legs and hypotenuse of the triangle. Pupils show that the area of the squares on the leg equal the area of the square on the hypotenuse.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Dilations with Matrices

Math whizzes explore dilations. They use matrices to perform dilations centered at the origins of triangles and investigate the effect of scale factor on the size relationship between the pre-image and the image of a polygon. A link to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Dilations in the Plane

Tenth graders investigate dilations and explore the dilation transformation before investigating the properties of a dilation using Cabri Jr. Students extend the concept of dilatation to the coordinate plane.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### All Systems Go!

Secret codes are so much fun, and a great way to practice nearly any math skill. Let your class become code breakers as they investigate inverse matrices. They use TI-Nspire technology to solve systems of equations which help them crack...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Parallel Lines Cut By a Transversal

Perhaps planning a city isn't so difficult after all. Scholars first perform geometric constructions and investigate how parallel lines are useful in real-world situations. They then work on a city design project, drawing street maps,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Building a House

Ever dream of becoming an architect? Here's your chance to give it a try. After reviewing facts about triangles and quadrilaterals, pupils learn about the basics of architecture by talking to an architect or housing expert. They use...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal

Use the parallel lines to find your way. After first reviewing geometric constructions and the relationships between angles formed by parallel lines and a transversal, young mathematicians write proofs for theorems relating to parallel...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Quadrilaterals

Connect the quadrilaterals. Working in teams, pupils use a variety of tasks to make connections between special quadrilaterals. With the properties well defined, the groups construct quadrilaterals based on those properties. Learners...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Construct a 90 Degree Angle

There is more than one way to create a 90-degree angle. Using a compass and a straightedge, the video shows two ways to construct a right angle. The ways include using perpendicular bisectors and circle theorems. To wrap up, pupils...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Loci and Constructions

A General Certificate of Secondary Education math review has class members make basic constructions. Using a protractor and a ruler along with a compass, pupils develop drawings of triangles with given measurements. Scholars use their...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Construct a 45 Degree Angle

Create a 45-degree angle without bisecting an angle. A video shows a method to construct a 45-degree angle without needing to bisect a right angle. By constructing an isosceles right triangle, the presenter constructs a 45-degree angle...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Construct a 30 Degree Angle

Split it down the middle. Using the tools of geometric construction, the video shows two different methods of constructing a 30-degree angle. The first method bisects an angle of an equilateral triangle. The second uses the diagonal of a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Angle Bisector

Cut it in half with a compass and straightedge! Using construction tools, a video shows how to create an angle bisector. The presenter points out what it means to bisect an angle in terms of the measure and distances from the sides of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Perpendicular from a Line to a Point

Take steps in the right direction. With a short demonstration, a video shows the steps to construct a perpendicular from a line to a point. Using a protractor, the narrator confirms the resulting construction is perpendicular, and then...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Perpendicular Through a Point on a Line

Use one construction to complete a second. The short video shows how to incorporate the steps of a perpendicular bisector to create a perpendicular to a point on a line. With their own straightedges and compasses, classmates then...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Perpendicular Bisector

Where should the statue be located? The resource explains how to use a compass and straight-edge to construct the perpendicular bisector of a line segment. Using an exam question, the narrator models how to solve an application problem...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Congruent and Similar Shapes

By definition, a congruent shape remains similar, but similar shapes may or may not be congruent. Scholars watch a video explaining the sometimes-confusing concept. Practice problems ensure pupils demonstrate their understanding to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Module 2: Congruence, Construction and Proof

Construct yourself a winning geometry unit. A set of lessons introduces geometry scholars to constructions and proofs with compasses and straightedges. It also covers triangle congruence through transformations. This is the second of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Congruent Angles and Bisectors: Lesson

How is congruence shown? Using angles, the resource introduces the congruence symbol and explains the meaning of being congruent. A segment of a larger playlist on basic geometry discusses bisection as a way to arrive at two congruent...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Congruence, Construction and Proof

Learn about constructing figures, proofs, and transformations. The seventh unit in a course of nine makes the connections between geometric constructions, congruence, and proofs. Scholars learn to construct special quadrilaterals,...
