Chapter 1 - Introducing Geometry
Experiment with transformations in the plane.
As a student, I can...
In this unit, we will be introduced to the foundational elements of Geometry. These elements are the building blocks to more complex mathematics and therefore is a great starting place to begin our studies. In addition to learning formal terminology, you will have the opportunity to show off your art skills while applying them to the world of math. Don't worry if you don't consider yourself to be a fabulous artist. This type of art is partially experimental, deliberately calculated to discover postulates and theorems.
Unit Deadline: (09/20/2013)
Duration: You will have (8) class periods to complete Chapter 1.

POD Directions & Resources:
POD #2: CANCELED Photo Vocabulary Hunt
POD #5: 2D & 3D Object Representations
POD #6: Solving Word Problems
Self-Evaluations: You will self assess your work, based on a given rubric. If you are not satisfied with your assessment and you have enough time, you can fix your work before turning it in.
Peer-Evaluations: At the end of each POD, teams will share work with others and assess their work. Teams are expected to give constructive feedback so that they can edit/add/update their problems before the unit deadline.
