Q1, W4: September 4-7

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

MAFS.912.G-CO.3.9:  Prove theorems about lines and angles; use theorems about lines and angles to solve problems. (Theorems include: vertical angles are congruent; when a transversal crosses parallel lines, alternate interior angles are congruent and corresponding angles are congruent; points on a perpendicular bisector of a line segment are exactly those equidistant from the segment’s endpoints.)

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Students will review finding angle measures
  • Students will understand the angle relationships created when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal
  • Students will be able to use their knowledge of all angle pair relationships to find angle measures and solve for x when looking at diagrams that include parallel lines and transversals


Classroom Activities


  • Students will do a Mathspace assignment (Angles and Angle Measures Review)
  • Students will do two workbook pages (alternate assignment because internet was acting up)
  • If time, we will do some more of the problems from Angle Relationships Bingo


  • Students will create two foldables for their ISN (pages 7 and 8) on Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal


  • Students will work on a Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal Puzzle Activity (with a partner they will solve twelve problems–finding the value of x and the measure of angle y; when they finish all twelve, they will cut the twelve boxes apart and arrange them so that all answers correctly line up)
Assignments Due
  • Mathspace on Angles and Angle Measures (5th and 8th period only) due September 4
  • Parallel Lines Cut by Transversal Puzzle Activity due September 12/13

All IEP and ESOL accommodations will be provided daily.
