Unit 1 Resources to study

Tuesday, October 10th we will be taking part 1 of Unit 1. Part 1 is all about Parallel Lines and Transversals Vocabulary angle vocabulary, finding the value of missing angles and the triangle sum theorem. The attached PowerPoint will help you study the angle vocabulary and determine whether angles are congruent or supplementary. There are also some links within the presentation that will bring you to Khan Academy to practice some skills.

This week in Math

Due to the weather, this week is a short one. Instead of introducing something new, we are going to review last week’s concepts to make sure that we are ready to move on next week.

Wednesday: we are going to be completing an online lab to review Lines, Transversals and Angles. You can access the lab by clicking this link: https://student.desmos.com/?prepopulateCode=63ngv

Thursday: we will be exploring angle vocabulary and the angles of triangles today. You can access both activities with the links below:

This week in Math

We will shift our focus from multi-step equations to the coordinate plane. We will review the parts of the coordinate plane, plotting points and do some activities to make sure that we are prepared to utilize the coordinate plane in the next upcoming weeks. On Wednesday, we will begin Unit 1 with our introduction to translations. The remainder of the week, we will continue our discussion of translations that will prepare us for next week after our 3 day weekend.
