Q1, W5: September 28 – October 2 Geometry

TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject AreaGeometry Honors
Grade Level8
Week #September 28 - October 2
Unit of InstructionUnit One: Definitions, Segment and Angle Pair Relationships
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-GPE.2.5:  Prove the slope criteria for parallel and perpendicular lines and use them to solve geometric problems (e.g., find the equation of a line parallel or perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point).


Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • state that parallel lines have the same slope.
  • determine if lines are parallel using their slopes.
  • write the equation for parallel lines.
  • state that perpendicular lines have the opposite reciprocal slopes.(the product of the slopes equals -1).
  • determine if lines are perpendicular using their slopes.
  • write the equation for perpendicular lines.
  • use the slope criteria to prove parallel lines and perpendicular lines.
