Q3, W1: Geometry (January 7-11)

TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject AreaGeometry Honors
Grade Level8
Week #One
Unit of InstructionUnit 5: Quadrilaterals and Coordinate Geometry
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-CO.3.11:  Prove theorems about parallelograms to solve problems.  Theorems include:  opposite sides are congruent, opposite angles are congruent, the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and conversely, rectangles are parallelograms with congruent diagonals.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • Students will learn the properties of parallelograms and understand the differences between types of parallelograms such as rhombus, rectangle, and square.
  • Students will be able to find missing side lengths or angle measures of parallelograms based on the properties of the different types of parallelograms.
  • Students will apply theorems, postulates, or definitions to prove theorems about parallelograms.
Classroom Activities


  • Students will create a foldable on Parallelograms which will go on page 34 of their ISN.
  • Students will work through a Proving Quadrilaterals are Parallelograms page.
  • We will then do a Kahoot! on Parallelograms.


  • Students will do a Scavenger Hunt on Parallelograms (Using Algebra In Geometry) in which they will solve for x and y using their knowledge of the properties of parallelograms.


  • Students will copy notes into their ISN on Distance, Midpoint, and Slope.
  • Students will then work through a packet on Distance, Midpoint, and Slope in which they will use distance and midpoint and slope to prove things about quadrilaterals.


Assignments Due
  • Scavenger Hunt on Parallelograms due on January 9.
