On Wed-Thurs, the first half of class will be devoted to the second part of the unit test.
Block on Tues-Wed this week included an introduction to comparing area and volume and sides of similar figures by ratios. We also worked at understanding the relationships in similar right triangles formed when an altitude is dropped to the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
Students should now understand all of the problems from Homework 4 and 5. We wrote up a few conjectures from p 273-4 and p 605 and discussed problems assigned about the proportionality when sides of a triangle are intersected by a parallel to the third side.
HW #6 - p 595:1-7, p 608:8-11,20-21
