  • Chapter 7:  Transformations and Tessellations
  • Chapter 8:  Area (finding areas of rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids, kites, regular polygons, and circles)
  • Chapter 9:  The Pythagorean Theorem (right triangles, isosceles right triangles, 30-60-90 triangles, distance formula)
  • Chapter 10:  Volume (volume of prisms cylinders, pyramids, cones, spheres)
  • Chapter 11:  Similarity (similar polygons, similar triangles, and more)
  • Chapter 12:  Trigonometry (sine, cosine, tangent, Law of Cosines, Law of Sines)

Materials

Students should have a straight edge (ruler) and compass for class.  They will need these items daily when we start unit 3.

Chromebooks

We will be using Chromebooks in class regularly.  Students will complete classwork, most assignments, and keep their "notebook" online.  Quizzes given throughout the unit will be on paper.
