An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of congruent angles. Three angles are shown which always remain congruent as you drag any defining point on any angle. They all change together. This is designed to demonstrate that the angles are considered congruent even if they are in different orientations and the line segments making them up are different lengths. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the congruence of polygons. The applet presents nine polygons that are in fact congruent, but don't look it because they are reflected and rotated in various ways. If you click on one, it rotates and flips as needed, then slides over the top of another to show it is congruent. The web page describes how to determine if two polygons are congruent. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

Students' first experience with transformations is likely to be with specific shapes like triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, and figures with symmetry. Exhibiting a sequence of transformations that shows that two generic line segments of the same length are congruent is a good way for students to begin thinking about transformations in greater generality.

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of congruent triangles. Applets show that triangles a re congruent if the are the same, rotated, or reflected. In each case the user can drag one triangle and see how another triangle changes to remain congruent to it. The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.

This task has two goals: first to develop student understanding of rigid motions in the context of demonstrating congruence. Secondly, student knowledge of reflections is refined by considering the notion of orientation in part (b).

In this module, students learn about translations, reflections, and rotations in the plane and, more importantly, how to use them to precisely define the concept of congruence. Throughout Topic A, on the definitions and properties of the basic rigid motions, students verify experimentally their basic properties and, when feasible, deepen their understanding of these properties using reasoning. All the lessons of Topic B demonstrate to students the ability to sequence various combinations of rigid motions while maintaining the basic properties of individual rigid motions. Students learn that congruence is just a sequence of basic rigid motions in Topic C, and Topic D begins the learning of Pythagorean Theorem.

En este módulo, los estudiantes aprenden sobre traducciones, reflexiones y rotaciones en el avión y, lo que es más importante, cómo usarlas para definir con precisión el concepto de congruencia. A lo largo del tema A, sobre las definiciones y propiedades de los movimientos rígidos básicos, los estudiantes verifican experimentalmente sus propiedades básicas y, cuando son factibles, profundicen su comprensión de estas propiedades utilizando el razonamiento. Todas las lecciones del tema B demuestran a los estudiantes la capacidad de secuenciar varias combinaciones de movimientos rígidos mientras mantienen las propiedades básicas de los movimientos rígidos individuales. Los estudiantes aprenden que la congruencia es solo una secuencia de movimientos rígidos básicos en el Tema C, y el Tema D comienza el aprendizaje del Teorema Pitagórico.

The intent of clarifying statements is to provide additional guidance for educators to communicate the intent of the standard to support the future development of curricular resources and assessments aligned to the 2021 math standards. Clarifying statements can be in the form of succinct sentences or paragraphs that attend to one of four types of clarifications: (1) Student Experiences; (2) Examples; (3) Boundaries; and (4) Connection to Math Practices.

The goal of this task is to give students experience applying and reasoning about reflections of geometric figures using their growing understanding of the properties of rigid motions. In the case of reflecting a rectangle over a diagonal, the reflected image is still a rectangle and it shares two vertices with the original rectangle.

Learn how and when the Eastern Shoshone came to Wyoming, what are …

Learn how and when the Eastern Shoshone came to Wyoming, what are the Shoshone values, and what are the people of the Eastern Shoshone like? In the accompanying lessons plans (found in the Support Materials), students will gain an understanding of the Fort Bridger Treaty of 1868 including its importance to the state of Wyoming and the Eastern Shoshone Tribe in 1868 and today. The American Bison, or Buffalo as preferred by most tribes, has a significant existence among the Native American people. For thousands of years, the great American Buffalo roamed the Great Plains, migrating from north to south, searching for areas on which to thrive. The Shoshone people depended on the buffalo for many things that included food, clothing, and shelter. Every part of the buffalo was used and provided for the people.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Students will study (Highlight, paraphrase and report) the Treaty of 1868 between the Eastern Shoshone Tribe and the United States Government. Students will learn about the Eastern Shoshone people through the use of research and technology. Students will understand that the history of the Shoshone people in the Wind River Mountains dates back thousands of years. Students will understand that the circle of life continues in a perpetual cycle and is passed on through oral tradition. These stories often taught a lesson to young people. Students will understand the indigenous perspective of interconnectedness. Students will understand how bison populations were devastated by western expansion. Students will learn how to construct, read, compare and analyze different population graphs. Students will understand how the diets of the Shoshone people varied depending on the areas in which they lived. Students will acquire knowledge of the Wind River Reservation communities and be able to identify these locations on a map. Students will be able to further describe how their culture has shaped them. Students will be able to define the concept of culture. Students will be able to explain some of the attributes of culture.
