3rd period began class with the Reasoning Assessment.

Every class worked on our new unit: Building Blocks of Geometry.

Big take-away: this is not a "vocabulary" unit. This is about developing the symbolic language of geometry and connecting it to the verbal. The skills acquired lean more toward correct naming, good sketching, connecting definitions to sketches and interpreting what is true based on definitions.

We practiced naming and sketching of lines, segments, and rays from pp 33-34 in textbook: 2-6,8-11,13-16,18,21,22,24.

We added "ray" and "opposite ray" to our Geometric Truth section. Will attach a copy below. (These did not come from our textbook.)

We spent time with angles... make up a definition of angle based on a sketch. How do we name angles? What is an angle measure? What are congruent angles? What is an angle bisector and how can we use it? We also practiced using a protractor to measure angles.

HW #4: pp 43-44: 1-14.

Add to Geometric Truth section from pp 38-40 (page, term, definition, sketch, label): angle, angle measure, congruent angles, angle bisector.
