• Midsegments

    Posted by Kurt Waldner on 3/13/2020

    Today in class, we continued working with midsegments.  Students need to remember that the midsegment is the segment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle.  The midsegment is parallel to the third side and half the size of the third side.  We used this to work through a few problems on the practice worksheet.

    For homework, complete the midsegment practice worksheet.  Have a wonderful weekend.  GO LIONS!!

  • Returned Quiz and Midsegment

    Posted by Kurt Waldner on 3/11/2020

    Today in class, we returned the 60 point quiz on CPCTC.  We then defined and worked with the midsegment of a triangle.  The midsegment is just a segment connecting two midpoints.  The segment is also half the length of the third side.  We'll work more with it tomorrow.

    There is no homework.

  • CPCTC Practice

    Posted by Kurt Waldner on 3/4/2020

    Today in class, we finished checking the practice problems involving CPCTC.  Students were then given the option of more practice or taking the quiz.  After a split decision, we determined that we would practice another day and quiz on Friday.

    For homework, complete the extra practice on CPCTC.  We will have the quiz on Friday.

  • CPCTC Review

    Posted by Kurt Waldner on 3/3/2020

    Today in class, we reviewed the concept of CPCTC with two congruent pentagons (which I guess would make it CPCPC!). We briefly gave some hints to setting up the homework (pictures help tremendously).

    For homework, make sure the CPCTC practice work is complete.

  • CPCTC

    Today in class, we continued working with corresponding parts of congruent triangles and the fact that they are congruent.  We worked on aligning the corresponding sides with each other and the corresponding angles with each other.  We used highlighters to help, especially when the shape is rotated or flipped.  We then used algebra to help determine some of the missing side lengths and angle measures.  We used the remainder of class to finish out the practice problems.

    For homework, finish the practice problems on CPCTC.
