Q1, W2: August 20th-24th

TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject AreaGeometry Honors
Grade Level8
Week #2
Unit of InstructionUnit 1: Definitions, Segment and Angle Relationships
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-CO.1.1:  Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will be able to recognize precise definitions and match them with the correct geometry term.  

Students will be able to identify the various types of angles (acute, obtuse, right, straight, and reflex) and will be able to identify angle pair relationships (verticle angles, linear pair, complementary angles, supplementary angles).



Classroom Activities


  • Bell Ringer:  students will practice graphing lines from equations
  • Students will set up the Table of Contents for their ISN
  • Students will create page 1 in their ISN (Basic Geometry Vocabulary
  • Students will create page 2 in their ISN (The Coordinate Plane)


  • Bell Ringer:  students will study vocabulary words with a partner
  • Students will create page 3 in the ISN (Basic Angle Vocabulary)


  • Bell Ringer:  students will complete page 3 in their ISN
  • Students will look at some geometry figures with angles and identify vertical pairs, linear pairs, etc.  They will also identify information that is explicity given in the diagram and what cannot be know.
  • Students will practice together, determining the measure of angles in a diagram based on the information that is given.
  • Students will use Algebra to solve for x and y in angle relationships.
  • Students will do a Scavenger Hunt where they will be solving for x given information about angles in the diagrams.
Assignments Due

Scavenger Hunt activity due August 23/24th.
