Angles and Theorems About Points, Lines, Planes, and Segments
Students take notes as the teacher writes definitions, illustrations, and example problems on the board.
Inductive Reasoning and Using Formulas
Starting with patterns, students hypothesize what the relationships will be. Then, given geoboards, students hypothesize to derive formulas.
Points, Lines, Planes, and Segments
Students are taught definitions and relationships through a Prezi presentation and are then put into groups. In these groups, they will prepare for a 'test' on the information and the group with the highest scores wins a prize.
More Theorems and Identifying Angles
Students learn how to identify angles by comparing angles to a rectangle that can be divided into smaller sections.
Accommodating for Sandra
Sandra's strengths include memorization, getting along with peers, and computer skills. She is interested in teaching, computers, and design. However, she needs help understanding figurative language, metaphors, analogies, and symbolic words, understanding major concepts, and completing homework assignments, In this geometry class, and specifically in this unit, Sandra has the opportunity to succeed in many ways. To begin with, a lot of the material taught in this unit is taught by first understanding the basics. The theorems and formulas we use are derived after first knowing what they are made up of. Another area for Sandra to excel is with the game project. She has an opportunity to show off her design skills and let her personality pop through. It is something she can be interested in as well as utilize her partner for any additional needed help. Finally, there is a lot of technology from presentations to class examples that can be sure to grab her attention. She can also use these websites as additional help for her personally on her own time. I think Sandra would benefit by being in my geometry class.
