• Middle School Mathematics Algebra I Unit 6A


    Subject: Mathematics
    Course: Algebra I
    Timeline: Varied
    Unit 6A Title: Geometry

    Unit Overview: 
     
    In this unit, students explore the three congruence transformations: rotations, reflections, and translations. Students will investigate combinations of translations that result in congruence or similarity transformations, including sequences of rotations, reflections, and translations.
    Unit Objectives:
     
    By the end of Unit 6A, all students will be able to:
    • Analyze two-dimensional space and figures using congruence and similarity with the effect of transformations on objects and be able to use these understandings to solve real-world or mathematical problems.

    Focus Standards:
     
    CC.2.3.8.A.2 Understand and apply congruence, similarity, and geometric transformations using various tools.

    M08.C-G.1.1 Apply properties of geometric transformations to verify congruence or similarity.

     

    Mathematical Practice Standards:

    #2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
    #3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
    #4 Model wit mathematics.
    #5 Use appropriate tools strategically.
    #6 Attend to precision.
