Week #September 27-October 1
Unit of InstructionUnit 1: Definitions, Segment and Angle Pair Relationships
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-CO.4.12:  Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.)  This includes: copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • identify the tools used in formal constructions.
  • use tools and methods to precisely copy a segment.
  • use tools and methods to precisely copy an angle.
  • use tools and methods to precisely bisect a segment.
  • use tools and methods to precisely bisect an angle.
  • construct perpendicular lines and bisectors.
  • construct a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line.
