The Right Triangle Geometry lesson can be approached in one of two ways, depending on students' understanding of right triangle geometry prior to beginning the lesson.Teaching Plan A assumes that students have not yet been introduced to certain principles of right triangle geometry, including the Pythagorean Theorem, Sum of Angles, and Definition of Sine, Cosine, and Tangent. If your students are already familiar with these principles, you may refer to Teaching Plan B.
The objective of this section is to introduce students to the types of problems that can be solved using right triangle geometry.
The objective of this section is to introduce the basic principles of right triangle geometry needed to solve for unknown values of a right triangle.
The objective of this section is to help students apply and master the principles of right triangle geometry by solving problems.
The objective of this section is to assess students' mastery of the principles reviewed in this lesson.
Teaching Plan B assumes that students already have a basic understanding of certain right-triangle-geometry principles, including the Pythagorean Theorem, Sum of Angles, and Definition of Sine, Cosine, and Tangent.
The objective of this section is to help students warm up to the lesson by reviewing several applications of right triangle geometry.
The objective of this section is to assess students' mastery of the principles reviewed in this lesson. Note that this section may be completed on Day 1, time permitting.
Geometry - Standard 2. Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationship.
