Geometry - Periods 1, 5, & 7
Course Description of Illustrative Mathematics (IM):
“IM Geometry is a problem-based core curricula rooted in content and practice standards to foster learning and achievement for all. Students learn by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language.”

Parents: I highly recommend creating a Canvas Parent Observer Account for full access! Here’s a link to a GVSD webpage with instructions on how parents can become observers in Canvas: https://www.gvsd.org/parent-canvas. They need their children to be able to create a pairing code in order to do so.
Throughout this year, students will expand and deepen their prior understanding of geometric constructions and rigid transformations. Students will reason to determine congruence of two-dimensional plane figures through a sequence of rigid transformations; similarity will include dilations with rigid transformations. Students will learn to explain and prove geometric concepts. Students will learn about right triangle trigonometry through explorations and patterns. When introducing three dimensional geometry and circles students will develop and use appropriate formulas. Students will use experiments and data to make sense of probability. Throughout the course, students will practice reasoning about situations and mathematical representations, interpreting numbers in context, and using mathematical tools to model quantities and relationships.We will mainly be working through Canvas, please check there for assignmnents and study recources.Calculators I recommend (unless you are going to college for a math related degree - then might be a good idea to invest in this graphing calculator):
