Week #25
Unit of Instruction5: Pythagorean Theorem; 6; Transformational Geometry
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.G.2.7

Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.

MAFS.8.G.1.1 Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:

  • MAFS.8.G.1.1.a Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.

  • MAFS.8.G.1.1.b Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.

  • MAFS.8.G.1.1.c Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

I can…

  • understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem
  • understand congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, or geometry software
