• Middle School Mathematics Algebra I Unit 1A


    Subject: Mathematics
    Course: Algebra I
    Timeline: Varied
    Unit 1A Title: Similar Triangles

    Unit Overview: 
     
    This unit extends what students already know about unit rates and proportional relationships to linear equations and their graphs. 
     
    Unit Objectives:
     
    By the end of Unit 1A, all students will be able to understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.
     

    Focus Standards:
     
    CC.2.2.8.B.2 Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.

    M08.B-E.2.1.2 Use similar right triangles to show and explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane.
