An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the properties of a 3:4:5 triangle - one of the Pythagorean triples. The applet shows a right triangle that can be resized by dragging any vertex. As it is dragged, the remaining vertices change so that the triangle's side remain in the ration 3:4:5. The text on the page has an example of how the triangle can be used to measure a right angle on even large objects. 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.

This task is for instruction purposes. Part (b) is subtle and the solution presented here uses a "dynamic" view of triangles with two side lengths fixed. This helps pave the way toward what students will see later in trigonometry but some guidance will likely be needed in order to get students started on this path.

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.

In Module 3, students learn about dilation and similarity and apply that knowledge to a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem based on the Angle-Angle criterion for similar triangles.  The module begins with the definition of dilation, properties of dilations, and compositions of dilations.  One overarching goal of this module is to replace the common idea of same shape, different sizes with a definition of similarity that can be applied to geometric shapes that are not polygons, such as ellipses and circles.

Module 7 begins with work related to the Pythagorean Theorem and right triangles.  Before the lessons of this module are presented to students, it is important that the lessons in Modules 2 and 3 related to the Pythagorean Theorem are taught (M2:  Lessons 15 and 16, M3:  Lessons 13 and 14).  In Modules 2 and 3, students used the Pythagorean Theorem to determine the unknown length of a right triangle.  In cases where the side length was an integer, students computed the length.  When the side length was not an integer, students left the answer in the form of x2=c, where c was not a perfect square number.  Those solutions are revisited and are the motivation for learning about square roots and irrational numbers in general.

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how students reason about geometry and, in particular, how well they are able to: use facts about the angle sum and exterior angles of triangles to calculate missing angles; apply angle theorems to parallel lines cut by a transversal; interpret geometrical diagrams using mathematical properties to identify similarity of triangles.

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.

En el módulo 3, los estudiantes aprenden sobre la dilatación y la similitud y aplican ese conocimiento a una prueba del teorema de Pitagorean basado en el criterio de ángulo de ángulo para triángulos similares. El módulo comienza con la definición de dilatación, propiedades de las dilataciones y composiciones de dilaciones. Un objetivo general de este módulo es reemplazar la idea común de la misma forma, diferentes tamaños con una definición de similitud que se puede aplicar a formas geométricas que no son polígonos, como elipses y círculos.

El módulo 7 comienza con el trabajo relacionado con el teorema de Pitágoras y los triángulos rectos. Antes de que se presenten las lecciones de este módulo a los estudiantes, es importante que las lecciones en los módulos 2 y 3 sean relacionadas con el teorema de Pitágoras se imparten (M2: Lecciones 15 y 16, M3: Lecciones 13 y 14). En los módulos 2 y 3, los estudiantes usaron el teorema de Pitágoras para determinar la longitud desconocida de un triángulo derecho. En los casos en que la longitud lateral era un entero, los estudiantes calcularon la longitud. Cuando la longitud lateral no era un entero, los estudiantes dejaron la respuesta en forma de x2 = c, donde C no era un número cuadrado perfecto. Esas soluciones se revisan y son la motivación para aprender sobre las raíces cuadradas y los números irracionales en general.

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.

This is a cross curricular art project for 8th grade math students. Students are first introduced to what the Wheel of Theodorus is, ponder where they see it in the world around them and then instructed on how to create their own. When they have finished constructing their Wheel of Theodorus they are asked to creatively and colorfully turn it "into" something. Examples are given. After they Wheel of Theodorus is complete, students are then asked to measure all the sides lengths of the triangles in the wheel. They should quickly see that they can use the Pythagorean Theorem to do this and that it follows a predictable pattern. No ruler will be required for this part of the project!

This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to: recognize and visualize transformations of 2D shapes; and translate, reflect and rotate shapes, and combine these transformations. It also aims to encourage discussion on some common misconceptions about transformations.
