MAFS.912.G-SRT.2.4: Prove theorems about triangles. (Theorems include: Triangle Proportionality Theorem or Side Splitter Theorem – a line parallel to one side of a triangle divides the other two proportionally; the Pythagorean Theorem proved using triangle similarity.)
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
- apply theorems, postulates, or definitions to prove theorems about triangles, including proving The Pythagorean Theorem using triangle similarity.
- use angle measures to estimate side lengths and vice versa.
- solve right triangles by finding the measures of all sides and angles in the triangles using Pythagorean Theorem and/or trigonometric ratios and their inverses.
- I will give students notes on the Pythagorean Theorem and Its Converse and we will go over
- We will watch a video on Proving the Pythagorean Theorem
- I will break down the proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and help them see how it is based on similar triangles
- Students will do IXL’s Q.1 and Q.3 on the Pythagorean Theorem and the Pythagorean Inequality Theorem
- Students will work on their Dilations Project which we already set up
- Students will finish their Dilations Project
- If they finish, they can finish working on IXL’s
- IXL’s Q.1 and Q.3
- Dilations Project
