Subject AreaGeometry Honors
Grade Level8th
Week #2
Unit of InstructionPrior Knowledge/ Writing and Solving Linear Equations
Standard(s) Taught

No Geometry Standards were taught.  Review of Algebra knowledge needed to succeed in Geometry.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Summative

None.

 

Formative

The learning targets are to successfully review the following Algebra skills:

 

Solving Equations – students will be able to solve for the variable in a linear equation whether one or multiple steps are involved.

System of Equations – students will be able to solve the ordered pair that solves two equations using substitution and using elimination.

Factoring Quadratics – students will be able to factor a trinomial (a math expression with 3 terms) into the form (ax – b)(cx – d).

Radical Expressions –students will be able to simplify radical expressions to the simplest form.

 

Understanding the above learning targets will be necessary to be successful in Geometry. 

 

The learning criteria will be judged by mastery of each learning target.  Mastery will be measured by the following:

Solving Equations worksheet – getting 5 out of 7 problems correct – 71% out of 100%.

System of Equations worksheet – getting 4.5 out of 6 problems correct – 75% out of 100%.

Factoring Quadratics worksheet – getting 10.5 out of 15 problems correct – 70% out of 100%.

Radical Expressions worksheet – getting 8.5 out of 12 problems correct – 71% out of 100%.
